Family History Scraps

Nothing earth-shattering to report on today, but a few oddments have surfaced, thus...


The anniversary of an important historical event seems to have slipped by almost unnoticed - for it was 90 years ago last week that the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty took place. The National Archives of Ireland have, however, come up trumps with a splendid online exhibition on the topic.


Forthcoming events of interest to genealogists...

I've noticed that a few of GENUKI's county pages have been updated of late - namely, those covering Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Devon, Norfolk and Nottinghamshire. Please note, though, that most of the county pages do not have an 'updates page', so it is always worth checking your geographical areas of interest from time to time. The GENUKI main page can be found here.

Those of you who utilise Batch Numbers in their FamilySearch investigations will be pleased to see this announcement from the website in question.

The Origins website reports on a couple of additions to its National Wills Index.

A sad tale posted on Family Tree's Twitter page concerns the demise of two more local newspapers - this time in Kent. See the story here.

If you're into statistics - or, more specifically, Scottish stats - then here are a few BMD facts and figures from the GRO for Scotland.


There's a short piece from FMPIreland about Irish Burial Records & Gravestones to be found here.
