FFHS Awards Deadline


The Federation of Family History Societies' Awards deadline looms.  The Elizabeth Simpson Award is given to the best society journal, and there's a Best Website prize, too.  So if you really enjoy your quarterly journal or, indeed, your society's website, then why not encourage them to enter the appropriate competition.  You'll have to be very quick, though, as the closing date is 30th June.  See here for full details.

Important news from the North-West of England, with a reminder that Lancashire Archives are to close from 4th July until mid-October.  See the FFHS announcement, here, where you can click through for more information from the horse's mouth.


Thanks to John Reid for flagging, well, not a website exactly, but an online pdf document which gives useful information about the availability of digitised newspapers on the Internet - see here.


The BBC's 'History Headlines' makes especially good reading this week.  And those with an interest in the wonderful city of Bath may want to have a look at this.

There's also an interesting (short) piece about TV's kids' programme Horrible Histories, here.  The developing debate in the comments section is worth a look, too.  I must admit that I have been a fan of the programme for some time, and was blissfully unaware that it had an adult audience!


Your regular TV & Radio listings for the coming week can be found here and here.
