All Set for York


The build-up to the Yorkshire Family History Fair continues (25th June).  Those of you who live in the south (or the far north for that matter) may not have been to this event, ever, but trust me, it's a very big occasion and much anticipated by thousands.  S&N Genealogy Supplies, under the guise of TheGenealogist, are sponsoring the fair, of course, and they have released a 'Yorkshire Special' e-newsletter, here.

Family Tree Magazine's July issue has been published today - see here.

DeceasedOnline have released more burial records, this time pertaining to Peterhead, Aberdeenshire.  Check out the news release, here.

Ancestry have updated their 'UK & Ireland Obituary Collection' - though I'm not sure how much new stuff is on there.  You can search the same without even logging in.


The BBC has listed a selection of forthcoming TV & Radio programmes of interest, here.


And the same organisation presents its 'History Headlines' for the week, here.


Birth of...
Founder of Methodism, John Wesley, born in 1703 in Lincolnshire - the 15th of 18 children (or 19 - they lost count).
