This weekend's forthcoming events are dominated by the giant annual get-together that is the Yorkshire Family History Fair. I have exhibited there many times in my former days as a small time publisher during the late 90s and early 00s, though I shall not be there this time around. It's a fantastic event - get there if you can.

Oh, here's another offer for you. I see that Lulu.com is offering 20% off purchases until Friday 29th June (see their homepage which shows the code here). So now's the time to buy up all my books at my Lulu storefront! You have to register at Lulu (free) before you can use the site. P&P is a bit hefty on 'hard copy' books, but if you buy more than one then it works out much better.
