God's Family Tree

This is a weird one.  Whether you're religious or not, you can't help but be impressed by Robert Rouse's 'Mapping God's Bloodline' graphic at the Soul Liberty website.  You can zoom in and out, and it's quite a lot of fun.  Thanks to MyHeritage for flagging this one.


First up, I'd just like to add another 'forthcoming event' to yesterday's list.  And I'm ashamed to say that this one is from my part of the world, so I don't know how I managed to overlook it.  Anyway, here it is:-
  • Saturday 14th May - Yesterday Belongs to You 10 at Shildon, Co.Durham - see here.

Two major announcements by FindMyPast, thus:-

The Family Recorder blog has announced the release, today, of 100s of millions of new American Civil War records on FamilySearch - see here.  Apparently, there were a fair few British & Irish citizens caught up in the conflict, so this news is not quite as irrelevant as it may at first seem!


Death of...

Singer Bob Marley, in 1981 in Miami, aged 36.

1985:  Bradford Stadium fire disaster.  56 deaths.
