From today (29th) until 5th September, Ancestry are offering completely free access to their Immigration Records. If you haven't already done so, you'll have to register on their site first - but this is free, too, so it must be worth a dabble.
Whilst we're on the subject of special deals, further clarification/detail on that special offer from FindMyPast (reduced membership fees) can be found here.
I have been asked by publisher Bob Blatchford to plug his forthcoming Irish Family & Local History Handbook, full details of which can be found here. I'll be reminding you all again of this major publishing event a little nearer the time - but you can get your order in now. There you go, Bob.
Another issue of the Lost Cousins Newsletter is now available. Unmissable, as ever - and a fair bit of interesting banter about the state and fate of our old cemeteries is included. Do have a read.
The latest Eneclann Newsletter is up for grabs, too. They've three new publications on offer, and there's a special look at County Antrim.
Bradford during WWI is the subject matter of this recently-spotted blog ... which will contain plenty of useful stuff for those of us with a general interest in the Great War.
