PRONI Lectures

NEWS

Great news for researchers based in Northern Ireland with the announcement of a series of talks by PRONI and The Open University in Ireland.  The 'Exploring Local History' lecture programme spans some seven events during September-April - full details can be found here.

The Irish Genealogy News blog has issued another update in connection with the Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives.

S&N Genealogy have published the 'Late August Edition' of their newsletter - one of those regular write-ups which is always worth a quick look

The folks at TheGenealogist have unveiled the complete 1911 Census for London for their Diamond subscribers.

A couple of items from the keyboard of blogger Chris Paton.  Firstly, there's the surprising news that the BBC are selling off several of their periodicals, WDYTYA? Magazine included!  Chris also sums up the recent controversy surrounding Geni.com - not something which I have found myself embroiled in (thankfully), but many of you may have a vested interest.

Oh, and the September issue of HistoryToday Magazine is now up for grabs.
