Slow Start

A slow start to the year, news-wise - but I'll give you what I've got...


Claire Santry's Irish Genealogy News blog is back on the road after the festive period, with an update to the Ireland Genealogy Project Archives, and a helpful events listing for January. I hope you will excuse the slight lull on Claire's blog of late, which is due to her being otherwise engaged.

The first Lost Cousins newsletter of 2012 can be found here - which in itself gives you plenty of reading to make up for today's paltry blog effort!

A handful of events are coming up this weekend...

  • Saturday 7th January - York Book Fair;
  • Postcard fairs at Powick (7th) and Glasgow (8th) - see here. Please check with organisers before travelling.


Scottish researchers with an interest in WWI are sure to want to have a look at a guest post on the British GENES blog by Tunji Lees. It concerns the Scottish WWI Pensions Appeal Tribunals records held at the National Records of Scotland.

And thanks to this post at The Family Recorder for a rather odd but interesting analysis, here, of the place-names of the UK.


Came across this interesting new product this morning. Seems like a neat idea, namely, Blank Family Tree Sticker Charts from My History. Click on the link below to be taken straight to the relevant page...
