National Maritime Museum


Researchers with maritime ancestors will be thrilled to learn of the opening of a new wing of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich dedicated to making the centre's holdings more accessible to visitors.  The new facilities will be available following next week's opening ceremony - read a neat intro on the WDYTYA? website here, then get it from the horse's mouth, here.

A couple of newsletters have been released of late:

  • The National Archives (including details of their new Discovery Service, and don't forget to check out their Events programme - oh, and please ignore the 'Dear Michael' bit at the top!);
  • The National Library of Ireland (basically a 'Sales' special, where they're virtually giving items away!).

Diamond subscribers to TheGenealogist will want to have a look at the latest batch of education records to be placed at their disposal (together with a new 'search interface') - see here.

And the news keeps coming regarding the Isle of Man - see here for details of an important new book for Manx researchers.
