WDYTYA? Fair Prep Up and Running


As we suspected earlier this week, the tickets have gone on sale for February's Who Do You Think You Are? Live fair. The first of what will probably be many special offers can be found here (there may be more around, too!), and the official website can be found here.

The December issue of Family Tree Magazine is now available. You'll also find instructions there about how to purchase a digital copy of the magazine.

Diamond subscribers to TheGenealogist now have access to additional bits of the 1911 Census (Lancashire, Surrey & Middlesex).

Chris Paton has noted that the Imperial War Museum is looking for family history volunteers to test a new genealogy course - see his post here.

Chris also points out the availability of the 'Archives & Records Association Ireland' newsletter.

Several bloggers are reporting on the pending announcement re. the British Newspaper Archive. It seems that all will be revealed later this month with an official launch! More than a million pages of newspaper text will be made available, thanks to the institution's partnership with BrightSolid. It'll be pay-per-view/subscription online access, of course - though if you can get to the British Library's Reading Rooms, then it'll be free.

Pen & Sword Books are among the first to be gearing up for Christmas with a special sale. There's also a special offer in there about Your Family History magazine subscription rates.

And here's the monthly 'Out and About' offering from the BBC's HistoryExtra website.


The very same website also have their 'History Headlines' for the week, too, of course.


And there's also the forthcoming TV/Radio schedule, history-wise, here - with a few more bits here.
