Lancs and Manx


We end with a quiet day, after what has been a fairly uneventful week, family history-wise.  Liverpool researchers, though, will be happy to see more records going up at Ancestry - see the 'update' page here, and click on your area of interest.

Across the sea from Liverpool there is the Isle of Man, of course.  And I see there's a series of free 'Heritage Talks' coming up at Promenade Church in Douglas during August.

The National Archives has launched a new library catalogue - read all about it here.

The latest issue of CAIRT, the newsletter of the Scottish Maps Forum, is freely available online.

And BBC History Magazine's weekly podcast is also now available (the British seaside holiday and the reign of Edward VI).


Oh, and the BBC's 'History Headlines' have been posted here.


1966:  England win the football World Cup with a 4-2 win over West Germany at Wembley.
