More on PRONI


A great post on the Scottish GENES blog by Chris Paton about the PRONI opening on 30th March can be found here.  A must for all interested parties.  Well done, Mr Paton!

S&N Genealogy Supplies have brought out another update, here.  Obviously, most of the reading concerns their own services and goods, but I would urge you to have a quick look all the same.

And the latest issue of BBC History Magazine is out now - see here.  Oh, and the same guys have just published their Out and About guide to April, too.


Well, we might as well stay with the BBC History website for their weekly History Headlines, and a look at classic hoaxes on this, April Fools' Day!  No one seems to know when the April Fool thing began (see here and here) - but a 'Top 100 hoaxes' can be found here.

If you have ancestors involved in the cotton industry, then you'll want to have a read of this piece by Audrey Collins.

And here's more TV & radio to look out for in the week ahead.
