Genealogy News - 1st March

I am sure many of you out there will be interested to learn that a new (digital) genealogy magazine is in the pipeline. I first picked up the news on Chris Paton's 'British GENES' blog - see here.

The WDYTYA? website (among others) reports on the unveiling of a new online resource concerning Britain's links with the slave industry and the folk involved in the trade.

There is some important Welsh news here and here.

Here's a little bit more information about FindMyPast's pending Yorkshire parish records release.

Yorkshire researchers will also want to read this post from Chris Paton.

FindMyPast Ireland have published an article on the subject of the 'Criminal Irish in Britain'.

Here's the March lecture programme for Gresham College, London. Remember, these talks are free and open to all.

Latest issue of Your Family Tree magazine.

This book may interest new-starters in the genealogy game.

Similarly, Northern Irish newbies may wish to follow the link suggested by Claire Santry.

Claire also brings us news of the forthcoming Ulster History & Genealogy Summer School, as well as a list of forthcoming Irish events.

News from the National Library of Scotland (note the item about their 'Gazetteers of Scotland'). The NLS also provide some leads for the Fire Service in Scotland.

Here's the latest effort from the folk at Ireland Reaching Out.

And here's the latest from the BBC's HistoryExtra website:
