#AskArchivists Day

NEWS

The National Archives, along with many other similar national and local institutions, will be taking part in a special online event called #AskArchivists Day on Twitter, on Thursday 9th June.  Read all about it, here, and keep an eye on your own local archive for regional participation.  You don't have to have a Twitter account to follow proceedings - though of course you will need one to actually contribute.

TNA's new Chief Executive and Keeper, Oliver Morley, will also be on hand in person to answer questions on the same day - in the public restaurant of TNA, between 2pm and 3.30pm - see here.

The latest TNA Podcast, Behind the Scenes: two centuries of census-taking, is now available - click here to access the same.

The Society of Genealogists has received a kindly mention by The Nosey Genealogist, here, where there is some news of further records being made available for members.  And the SoG's own blog is trying to persuade us to indulge in a membership package for Fathers' Day, here.

Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Archive Service have announced that the online index of wills proved in the Diocese of Lichfield has been extended and now covers the period 1650 to 1730. To view the index see http://www.staffsnameindexes.org.uk/ .
