The National Archives has set up a resource for those studying 1960s Britain. See their news release, here, where you will find all the details and relevant links. After having a quick look, I must admit it looks rather neat.
Lost Cousins' latest newsletter is now available, providing, as it does, a summary of recent family history news. Most of the items have been covered on BI-Gen, but there are a couple of snippets which are new to me: 'Searching for Family History Using Google' and 'FamilySearch Re-instates Batch Numbers' are certainly worth a read. There are also a few other bits and pieces worth running your eye over, so do have a look.
The British Library has been involved in the development and release of a new 'App' for the iPad called the '19th Century Historical Collection'. It all sounds pretty spectacular - see here for full details.
I only mention an overseas news item if it's major, and I think MyHeritage's recent purchase of the substantial Polish genealogy website Bliscy.pl just about qualifies. If you're interested, click here.
