Irish Closures, Changes & Disruptions


Users of The National Archives of Ireland should take note of the following:

Also in Ireland, the Linen Hall lecture scheduled for 30th November (PRONI and Conflict on the Internet) has been moved forward to Tuesday 29th November (1pm, I think), due to the threat of strike action.

Ancestry have released more than 880,000 records pertaining to the WWI Silver War Badge.

Hope it's not too late to mention Essex Record Office's Local History Conference entitled 'Our History' on Saturday 19th November (10am-4pm) - see page 13 of their events guide.

Chris Paton reports on a few updates to the Scottish Monumental Inscriptions catalogue.

John Reid flags a very useful resource for UK trade union, employers' and trade association records, here.

And for those of you who are interested in such things, The National Archives have taken another step forward in their 'archives accreditation' scheme


Back to blogger Chris Paton for a nice spot made on the ScotlandsPeople website, namely, a BBC beginner's guide to Scottish family history research - see his post here.


Get ready for tomorrow's episode 4 of Find My Past (Yesterday channel, 9pm) with a little trailer.


Ancestry have a slightly off-beat military piece about the role of animals in WWI.

And The Professional Descendant has a short but enlightening piece about the Question of Religion in our ancestors' lives.
