The family history world continues to limp along during what is a very quiet August. There isn't much to report on since my Friday bulletin, but here's what I have to pass on...
First up, there's the latest Lost Cousins newsletter.
The latest TNA Podcast is here. There's a little bit of background info, too, here.
Also from TNA: an update on the digitisation of WWI unit diaries project.
The great Neil Armstrong died a few days ago, of course - and here's a fitting post by blogger Randy Seaver (which focusses on his family history).
There's news of a 1831 Census for Jedburgh here.
The weekly round-up of entertaining history links from the Two Nerdy History Girls can be found here.
