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.
