England's National Heritage List


Though it's not strictly family history news, I suspect a lot of you out there will be more than a little interested in English Heritage's new 'National Heritage List for England' online facility.  HistoryToday's website has a neat little intro to it, here, where you will find all you need to know as well as the relevant link.  It is an utterly and wonderfully addictive site.

Another promising site is WorldCat, which enables you to search 10,000 libraries worldwide for a book of your choice.  I've not really investigated the same properly, but I thought I would pass the link on to you.

It's a long time since I've used the popular genealogical website Cyndi's List, but I believe it has recently been overhauled - so it may be worth a look if you've got a moment free this weekend.

And there's a heck of a long list of museums on Twitter for you to follow, here.


DeceasedOnline's latest news release can be found here.  It's all to do with the burial records of Romford Cemetery, Essex, which are now available for scrutiny on their ever-expanding website.

The June newsletter from Ancestry can be accessed here.

Diamond subscribers at TheGenealogist now have access to Poll Books for 1653-1856 covering Kent, Middlesex, Norfolk, Northants, Suffolk and Sussex.  See here.

And Wicklow researchers will want to check out the availability of over 95,000 new marriage records, here.


A two-minute video of 'This Week in History' can be viewed here.
