Welsh Feeds


I don't know if anyone can help me out on this one, but information feeds about what's going on, genealogically, in Wales are few and far between.  If anyone has anything to share with the rest of us then please get in touch.  I did, however, pick up on a helpful little source last week, namely, Swansea Libraries' Twitter feed.  Now I've not yet signed up to Twitter, but I've discovered that you can still follow what's going on by simply keeping tabs on individual Twitter 'pages' - so I have found that at!/libraryline quite useful.  One thing, for instance, that popped up a few days ago was the Crime and Punishment searchable database from the National Library of Wales, which includes gaol files of the Court of Great Sessions in Wales from 1730 until its abolition in 1830.  And it's free.

Another raft of new genealogy blogs has appeared in the GeneaBloggers weekly update.  Mainly US stuff, though.


The May 2011 issue of Ireland's Genealogical Gazette has been published online.  Lead article looks at the Queen's Kildare roots, and there's an interesting piece on tapping into old folks' family memories.


Part four of FindMyPast's look at understanding and interpreting old photographs has just been posted, here.
