Not an awful lot of news around this week. But, as usual, I shall share with you what I have managed to pin down...
Though it's a long way away from us, the famous RootsTech get-together is taking place in the States soon. You may wish to participate (well, sort of) by taking in a webinar or two - see Dick Eastman's post on the subject.
The latest Lost Cousins newsletter is out.
Yet more news from DeceasedOnline re. East London records. More on the cemetery in question here.
A couple of new (updated) items have appeared on the Ancestry updates page (UK incoming passenger lists and Dorset stuff).
The Irish Genealogical Research Society has launched its new website - ably explained by blogger Claire Santry.
I see that a week-long genealogy course is available from the SoG.
More news on the topic of slave-owning ancestors from TNA (inc. a talk). TNA also have a survey for you to complete.
Good news for researchers in Bromsgrove and area.

Usual Friday stuff from the BBC:
Fancy a history crossword?
Don't forget to check out the latest bits and bobs on the BI-Gen Twitter feed.
One last point. If you're travelling to an archive next week, beware of the disruption to services (inc. the archives themselves) on Wednesday 20th March. All to do with possible industrial action affecting public services.
