FamilySearch on YouTube


Various sources have reported the recent launch of FamilySearch's new YouTube Channel.  I have had little more than a cursory glance at it, but why don't you have a look for yourself - with the resources this organisation has at its disposal, I'm sure the facility will become a handy resource in the future.

As you would expect, there has been quite a bit of coverage of the recent release of Ancestry's new Railway Employment Records (see yesterday's blog entry) - you may wish to take in the reports here and here.

Up to Scotland now, and the release of the latest issue of Discover My Past: Scotland - see this link for further information.  I have Chris Paton to thank for that piece of news - and those of you with Scottish interests may well be interested in Chris's upcoming online genealogy course, too!

A little bit of news from the National Library of Wales, in the shape of their plans for this coming autumn - see their blog entry, here.


Historical TV & Radio programmes for the coming week can be found here.


I suspect that many of us can sympathise with the sentiments expressed by blogger Kirsty Wilkinson, here.  There's also a recommendation for a way of cataloguing your book collection, too.


A two-minute film of 'This Week in History' can be viewed here.
