As usual, here's a list of forthcoming events which may be of interest to the family historian. If you know of any that I've omitted then please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org ...
- Saturday 1st October - Oxfordshire FHS Open Day, Woodstock;
- Saturday 1st October - Hull Family History Fair;
- Saturday 1st October - Tameside Heritage Fair, Ashton-under-Lyne;
- Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd October - Dublin Book Fair;
- Saturday 1st October - Haywards Heath Postcard Fair (please contact organisers beforehand to check all OK).
I should also like to give plenty of prior warning about two rather more distant events, both of which require advance booking, thus:
- Saturday 12th November - Institute of Local & Family History: The Past, Present & Future of Family History (Preston);
- Saturday 19th November - Guild of One-Name Studies Seminar: Railway Records (Swindon).
Another Lost Cousins newsletter is available for perusal. There are several items in there that I haven't covered on my blog, and I'm going to force you to go there to pick them up as I think Peter Calver deserves to have his effort read by as many folk as possible. So there. Check it out here.
A couple of Irish items now. First up is a spot by The Nosey Genealogist about the new forum at FindMyPast Ireland. Hadn't noticed this before today. The original post is here - then follow the link, then click on 'Forums' in the horizontal menu bar. There's also a little intro here.
And the Irish Genealogy News blog has the latest on the forthcoming 'Certificate of Irish Heritage'.
It's such a lengthy post that I have to class it as an article, I think - and that's Chris Paton's colourful report on his adventures at the weekend's Tayroots Genealogy Fair.
And Chris also points out a new website, namely, 'The Breaking of Britain: Cross-Border Society and Scottish Independence, 1216-1314'. See his post here, where the relevant link can be found.
