I'm always checking on other genealogy blogs for important bits of news to pass on, but have been a bit lax of late - so it's time to catch up.
John D Reid's Anglo-Celtic Connections blog has produced the following over the past few days, all worthy of at least a cursory glance:
Chris Paton's British GENES blog has flagged the following items:
- Manchester & Lancs FHS Open Day (25th Feb);
- 'East India Company' FH Day (25th Feb);
- UHF's new Belfast records + some good general advice about Irish research.
I note, too, that the new-ish blog from The National Archives (which I mentioned several days ago) has a healthy batch of new posts to peruse. Have a look for yourself, here - you may wish to keep tabs on the same.
Thanks to Your Family Tree's blog for a little bit more information on that forthcoming radio show I mentioned on Monday - see here (and click on the link therein).
The February issue of Ireland's Genealogical Gazette (from the Genealogical Society of Ireland) is now freely available.
Going to Olympia for the fair this weekend? Here's what it (sort of) looks like.
- Wolverhampton LH Symposium (tickets left) (from @WolvesArchives);
- Titanic lunch menu to be auctioned (from @History_Hub);
- Family Tree Mag now out (from @familytreemaguk).

Died at Sanquhar on 26th February 1855 - Isabella Sommeral, aged 79; and on 1st March at the same place John Hunter, her husband. The aged couple were both born on one day and while the company were met for her funeral, the husband died.
