The Storm Passes


For many of you today will be a day of recovery; a day when (if you're not at work) you will be sorting through your notes and all those leaflets you picked up at the WDYTYA? Live! fair at Olympia.  For those of you that weren't there, there are plenty of online accounts of the goings-on.  Take a look at The Wandering Genealogist and Scottish GENES for a flavour of how things went.  I've a feeling there may be a bit of a lull after the storm, so to speak, but I'll do my best to keep you entertained.

Anglo-Celtic Connections' John Reid gives us a reminder of just how much can be found at the FamilySearch website, Census-wise, here.  I must admit that I wasn't aware that all of the Census Returns for England & Wales for 1841-1901 (except 1871) can now be found at FamilySearch in transcript form.  Brilliant!

This piece of news has been out there for a few days now, but just in case you missed it then you may wish to know about the release by the GOONS of the latest edition of their 'Surname Atlas'.  I know it has a lot of fans among the family history community, so you may wish to check it out.

TNA's latest Podcast can be found here.  It's entitled Broadmoor Revealed: the Victorian Asylum.

One last thing.  Readers may be interested in the latest issue of Discover My Past: Scotland, which has been released today.  See here.
