*** Please note that from this week I will be experimenting with a SINGLE blog post per week, which will appear every SATURDAY. The summer months are usually a little quiet, and I have a number of upcoming personal events to attend to (a holiday and a minor operation, to name but two), so the move makes sense. The next post will therefore be Saturday 20th July.***
First up are a few new bits and bobs from TheGenealogist (Lancs, Suffolk, Worcs, Jewish & Railway stuff).
GenealogyInTime has a neat summary of recent worldwide genealogical developments.
You may find these short articles handy ... Scottish Marriages and Illegitimate Births.
Latest update to the Ireland Genealogy Projects Archives is provided by Claire Santry. Claire also brings us some important Irish cemetery news.
Here's a useful article: Tips for Googling Your Family Tree.
