Articles Galore


Was having a wander round the Internet this morning and have found plenty of weekend reading for you. So let's get cracking...

The National Library of Ireland have published a piece entitled 'Researching the Irish Famine'.

Those with an interest in Irish emigration to Australia may find FindMyPast Ireland's recent post on the topic of interest.

An unusual piece on the death of Tom Williams, Edinburgh's hangman, has been flagged by Christine Woodcock. See the relevant post, with link, here.

With WDYTYA? Live 2012 approaching fast, That Moment in Time blog reminds us that you can still get your hands on the handouts/notes from the 2011 event, here. Very useful.

The latest newsletter from GenealogyInTime is worth a quick look - see here.

The week's 'History Headlines' from the BBC are now available.

The same website also gives us some smashing images from the travels of Captain Scott.

Might as well stick with the Beeb, and their latest Podcast (again, more Antarctic stuff).

Oh, and there's another Podcast - this time from TNA - to be found here.

BTW, just one slight amendment to give you to yesterday's blog entry. Many of you will have spotted the deliberate mistake in the email address given for the Ancestral Tourism Partnership event - yes, it should have read (and not three l's as previously given!).

I think that's enough for the weekend. See you Monday. Occasional minor updates and other nonsense available on Twitter by following me at @HistoryMick (or click on button, top-right).

Fancy a book? Have a browse of...
