George's New Box


You may have noticed Chancellor George Osborne flashing off his new 'Budget Box' yesterday (video here).  Well, TNA got into the swing of things, too, with a short article on the item, here.  Like many of you, I suspect, I had no idea the famous old dispatch box was quite so ancient!

On the subject of TNA, Audrey Collins provides a short piece, here, on using TNA's online catalogue.  A useful starter piece if you're planning a visit.

And if you use Ancestry's Family Tree Maker package you will want to have a look at this substantial post on the subject.


Thanks to Chris Paton's recent post, here, a good deal more of us are now aware of the Scottish Council on Archives new newsletter, Broadsheet (direct link here).  One for the connoisseur, I think, but definitely worth keeping an eye on if you're a serious Scottish researcher.

And Irish researchers may wish to have a quick look at this recent update concerning the indexing and computerisation of Irish parish records.
