Postal Heritage

WEBSITES

Those of you with an ancestral interest in the British Postal Service will want to check out the new website of the British Postal Museum & Archive.  Lots to see and do (and records to search through) for any interested parties.  Looks absolutely splendid.

A useful website for following developments in London can be found at 'Archives for London'.  Recent news articles on the site will be of great interest to those who use repositories in Hammersmith & Fulham, and Camden.

NEWS

Origins are offering a 20% discount on all Burke's Peerage and Gentry subscriptions - see here.

Residents of (or visitors to) Jersey, may be interested to learn of a new exhibition showing at Jersey Museum.  See this comment on my blog post of 7th June from James McLaren.

If you're considering calling into the magnificent occasion that is the Yorkshire Family History Fair on 25th June, then some free tickets can be won here.

ARTICLES

HistoryExtra's weekly 'History Headlines' can be found here.

MEDIA NEWS

The usual dual listings of the week's forthcoming TV & Radio shows can be found here and here.

OTHER STUFF

And finally, a special mention for Christine Woodstock of GenealogyToursOfScotland, who has written to me asking for a bit of publicity regarding her organised trips to, well, er, Scotland.  If you're based in or around Ontario (I'm not sure from how far afield Christine collects her clients) and you think you may be interested, then check out her website, or the 'New Products' section of BI-Gen (see title bar).
