Beginning in Ireland + Bits From Elsewhere

On a day when there doesn't seem to be an awful lot to shout about, we'll begin in Ireland with an article on the nation's Registry of Deeds as featured on the FindMyPast Ireland website. And Irish researchers will, I'm sure, find something of interest in the list of forthcoming events on the Irish Genealogy News blog.

If you're into 'Community Archives' (and many of you will, or perhaps would like to get involved) then check out the forthcoming get together of the 'Community Archives & Heritage Group' in Chippenham on Wednesday 2nd May. Have a general browse of their website, too, while you're at it.

'The Family History Show' website has added a new 'picture gallery' page.

The Two Nerdy History Girls provide their weekly list of history links, here.

There's an Easter subscription offer from HistoryToday magazine.

A promised mention to The Scottish Genealogy Society now, and a run-down of some of their recent publications:
  • 1790 Census of St.Cuthbert's Parish, Edinburgh on CD (£7.50);
  • A Peebles Miscellany - Transcripts of a selection of material from the Kirk Session Records (covering Eddleston, Innerleithen, Stobo, Traquair, West Linton - book, £4.50);
  • Edrom Parish - Certificates of Character given 1797-1815, received 1796-1854 (£3.50);
  • Berwickshire Miscellany (covering Ayton and Chirnside material - book, £4.50);
  • ... and much more.
All available from their online bookstore. If you've any queries you can contact the society at or tel: (0131) 2203677.

I am ashamed to say that I was unaware of the 'Find a Library' service as flagged by blogger John D Reid - very handy.

If you remember those old 'Public Information Films' of decades gone buy, then you'll want to check out this post on TNA's blog. You probably haven't seen some of them for many, many years!

Finally, if you fancy buying anything from the self-publishing site, then now's a good time to do so. By going to their website you will see that they have a 'Mystery Sale' running until the end of 6th April - and as far as I'm aware you don't even have to register with them to partake in the offer. Shameless self-promotion to follow ... my Lulu Storefront is here. As you know, I'm a big fan of the organisation.
