Tuesday's Genealogy Events Listing


Here's your weekly instalment of forthcoming events of interest:

I must apologise for missing the news of the re-opening of Gwent Archives a couple of weeks ago. I knew it was coming, but had a temporary malfunction in my memory bank. Anyway, check out the new set-up here.

A couple of items from the British Library now, beginning with the availability of more than 50,000 university theses. Don't know about you, but I often find some really useful historical stuff in this sort of material, so you may want to check it out. And those of you who regularly use the BL's Document Supply Service may not be aware of this helpful link.


There's a helpful piece for those of you who are heavy users of the FamilySearch website, here.

The HistoryToday website has a short article about the German perspective on WWI and 'Remembrance'.

And The Telegraph website has a curious little item about the island of Lundy.


'A History of Parliament' website is new to the Web. Not as boring as it sounds, as it contains articles covering many aspects of social history - even if they do seem to be a bit on the short side. Could be a one to add to your 'favourites'.
