I should like to dedicate today’s blog entry, as I am occasionally prone to do, to an appeal for information.
You’ve probably heard it before, so I’ll keep it brief. News, online articles, useful websites, unusual record entries, you know the sort of thing. Anything to do with British or Irish family history. Get items, links, etc., into me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
My plan to bring out a publication of genealogical oddities, etc., is progressing well. I am still keen to collect more material, though – stories, PR entries, MIs, that sort of thing. I will be putting the final touches on the booklet over the next few weeks, then starting immediately on a second volume. So I really do need some help!
If you want more info on my wants, needs and plans, then see this old post from June.
Oh, and don’t forget to help build up the ‘Surname Register’ (see link above).
