Passenger Lists News

NEWS

On a day that seems desperately short of genealogical developments (is everybody on holiday?), the biggest piece of new information I can find is on the Scottish GENES blog, which brings news from the GenesReunited site of the availability of various Passenger Lists.  Though as the announcement comes to a close, we find out that the said records were available online elsewhere all the time.

The July issue of Your Family History is available today; and the magazine is also running a competition to win a copy of Tracing Your Family History on the Internet by Chris Paton - see here.

There's an opportunity to have your say about The National Archives website in their online survey.

And there's been a flurry of announcements on the Open Genealogy Alliance's blog, here.

ON THIS DAY

Birth of...
Arthur Stanley Jefferson, aka Stan Laurel, in 1890 at Ulverston, Lancashire (now Cumbria).

1972:  Watergate Scandal begins when burglars are caught breaking into the Democratic Party's HQ in Washington in the US.
