Some Action from TheGenealogist


That popular family history concern, TheGenealogist, has released news of a couple more additions to their databases.  They concern, firstly, a varied selection of military and regimental records, plus some notable additions to their wills books collection.  Click here to learn more.

Those of you with Jewish ancestry - especially in and around London - may be interested in the latest announcement from Europeana.  See their blog entry here for news of a forthcoming online exhibition entitled Yiddish Theatre in London.


There's not much in the way of news floating around today, so I shall let you get back to your Sunday snooze.  First of all, though, you may want to have a look at HistoryToday magazine's 'This Week in History' video clip, here.

Also, there's a neat little tip on offer from Mike Kostiuk, here, about conducting searches at the FreeBMD website.  Very clever.


1967:  Six-Day War breaks out in the Middle East;
1968:  Robert Kennedy shot - dies the following day;
1975:  UK citizens vote to remain in the Common Market.
