James McLaren has penned another piece for The Nosey Genealogist's blog relating to family history in Jersey. This time he concentrates on French research, which quite obviously has lots of tie-ins with the history of the Channel Islands. The article may also help out mainland Brits, too, though - so do take a look if you're interested.
If you fancy having a go at writing for the family history market, then you must have a read of Chris Paton's helpful post on the subject, here. More advice to be found in the post's 'comments' section, too.
