Big Weekend


This coming weekend sees a sizeable batch of events of interest to the family historian...

In addition to the above, I think it wise to give you another reminder about the Cleveland FHS's Autumn Family History Day at Scotch Corner on Saturday 8th October.  As places for this 'do' have to be booked in advance, there seems little point in mentioning it again - so act now if you're interested (if it's not already too late!).

Whilst we're on the subject of 'what's on', you may be interested in this listing of upcoming Scottish events.

[ Please send details of any forthcoming events into me at micksouthwick@blueyonder.co.uk and I'll be happy to mention them.  I tend not to mention individual talks (too many), but anything longer will get a mention ]

S&N Genealogy have issued their September Newsletter.  Most of the news contained therein I have already brought you, but you should still have a quick look in case you're tempted by any of their sales pitch!

Ancestry have updated a couple of their record sets (UK immigration) - see here.

BBC History Magazine have another Podcast on offer (abolition of the slave trade, history of migraines and Erddig).


A website which I always find useful for detailed historical facts regarding almost any corner of the country is British History Online, and would recommend that you always bear the site in mind when conducting online research.  They've just issued a little update about some site changes, which gives me a flimsy excuse to pass on my general recommendation.

John Reid also offers a recommendation in the shape of The Wellcome Library and its blog.  See his post here, where you will find the link in question.  The library's post of 1st September is especially interesting.

HistoryToday also passes on details of a useful-looking website for those interested in warfare - see here.


And HistoryToday also provide a look back at 'This Week in History'.
