News from London


A few items concerning major London institutions to begin with.  First of all, there's the 'fixture list' for the rest of 2011 concerning events at the British Library.  I'll give you the link to the September listing, but you can easily move to future months from the page I've given you.

Then there's the latest newsletter from The National Archives.

And whilst we're in London, there's a little something on Black and Asian history in the UK with this series of lectures.  Though it says you don't need to book, it's probably best to double-check with the contact email if you're travelling from a distance.

Moving up the country a little bit, we have major news concerning Derbyshire Record Office and Derbyshire Local Studies Library.  Big changes coming up in the next few days, so please have a look if your interests lie in this part of the world.

FindMyPast have made an announcement concerning the availability of new Crew Lists for 1881 & 1891 - a chance, perhaps, to find that ancestor who was strangely missing from the census!

Origins also have some news for us, this time concerning their Hertfordshire Wills Index, 1415-1857.

Issue 19 of Your Family History magazine is now available.  YFH also have a competition running - see here.

Belfast's Linen Hall Library is playing host to a series of PRONI lunchtime lectures over the coming months.  They're free, but booking is essential - see here.  And Northern Irish researchers will be pleased to learn about the improved bus service to PRONI's premises.


A nice treat for Irish researchers can be found here - a huge list of freely-available online e-books!
