More New Mags


It's that time of month again - you know, when the new issues of the magazines are released.  The latest ones to have popped up are the May editions of Family Tree Magazine and History Today.

The National Library of Ireland has revised its opening hours, with effect from 3rd May - see here.

And, sticking with the Irish, Linen Hall Library has announced its events programme for May - with the Blitz Exhibition (Belfast April 1941) looking like a fine reason to pop in.

TheGenealogist has added 28,000 parish record entries for Staffordshire to its database.

And TNA has added another Podcast to its website, entitled From Crime to Punishment: criminal records of our ancestors from the 18th and 19th centuries. [This is a slightly different way into the Podcast series which I've just discovered - and is much better, the list stretching back several years!].


The BBC History Magazine's 'History Headlines' for the week; and a little story about cricket which I couldn't resist mentioning - though I appreciate it has nothing to do with genealogy!


Birth - and Death - of...

William Shakespeare - birth in 1564; death on same day in 1616.

... Which means that it must be St.George's Day!  Have the day off.

  1. Good concept! Best wishes!
    Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
