Tayroots Gathering


Scottish-based researchers will be most interested in the forthcoming Tayroots Genealogy Fair & Workshops at Dundee on 24th September.  The 'do' is being held at the city's Discovery Point visitor attraction, and there are all sorts of things lined up for the day - and almost everything seems to be free! (but it may be wise to book for some stuff).  Read all about it here.

Talking about events and the like, Londoners may care to take a look at TNA's list of forthcoming talks, etc. - see here.

Irish family history company, Eneclann, have released another newsletter.  Focus this time is on Cork, but there are some discounts and other bits and pieces to run your eye over, too.

Staying in Ireland, Linen Hall Library's August programme can be viewed here.

And moving back up into Scotland, blogger Christine Woodcock has flagged a series of online videos of the genealogical holdings at Glasgow's Mitchell Library.  See her post, here, where you can click on the link in question.  After you've viewed the first film (Poor Law records), you should be presented with the other videos across your screen.  Hope that makes sense.


If you've been following The Nosey Genealogist's recent articles on Wills, etc., then you'll want to have a look at the latest instalment (Administrations in England & Wales up to 1858).


1798:  The main action of the Battle of the Nile took place, the British under Nelson routing the French - forcing their surrender on the morning of 3rd.
