Random FH Events

Every Tuesday I try to bring together news of forthcoming Family History fairs and other events which may be of interest to my readers - and, of course, if you have any news to pass on in this respect then do get in touch with me at micksouthwick@blueyonder.co.uk . This time of year is usually a bit on the quiet side, but things will begin to take off soon. In the meantime, I have several slips of paper littering my desk with various random events scribbled upon them, so it's time for a clear out...

First of all, here's what's happening this weekend:
  • Saturday 11th February - Durham Book Fair;
  • Postcard Fairs at Exeter (11th), Stockport (11th), Lincoln (12th) an Fareham (12th) - see here. Please check with organisers before travelling.

Other, more distant, events include:

Moving on, I see that Lambeth Archives have reopened after their annual stock check (website here).

The ScotlandsPeople Newsletter for January can be viewed here (sorry I'm a bit late with this).

There's more Scottish news at the Electric Scotland website.

Ancestry also has a spot of Scottish news - and a little update on their Liverpool holdings - see their updates page and follow the relevant link.

A couple of items from FindMyPast Ireland:

A few marriage quotes:

Women marry men hoping they will change. Men marry women hoping they will not. So each is inevitably disappointed.

[Albert Einstein]

To be happy with a man you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.

[Helen Rowland, English-American writer]

Marriage is a wonderful institution... but who wants to live in an institution?

[Groucho Marx]
