Archive Cataloguing Grants
Access to 12 archive collections is set to be transformed by a series of grants announced today. The National Cataloguing Grants Programme 2011 has awarded £420,000 to archives across the UK to help make these vitally important collections fully accessible for the first time... And so begins the latest announcement by The National Archives concerning this noteworthy national scheme. See the story in full, with relevant links which reveal the beneficiaries of the project, by clicking here.
The Christmas issue of Family Tree magazine is now on sale.
The latest newsletter from Parish Chest is available for perusal, including its lengthy list of new product releases from organisations up and down the land.
And issue No.4 of the totally free Warfare magazine is up for grabs. The announcement also makes reference to their new website, too, which you may wish to check out.
The MyHeritage blog is running a story about the UK Schools Genealogy Project - and there's a website dedicated to the scheme, too (the link for which can be found in the story).
Blogger Christine Woodcock points us to a little-known source of Scottish emigrant information via an interesting little tale - see her post here.
