FamilySearch in the News

After featuring prominently in the current WDYTYA? Magazine, the FamilySearch website seems to be making it onto quite a few genealogy blogs of late. First of all, Nick Thorne examines an especially useful corner of the website, the 'English Jurisdictions Maps'; then there's Ruth Blair's informative piece on finding your way around the FamilySearch website. Also, the FamilySearch website itself has issued a little records update.

The latest Parish Chest newsletter is now available - the list of new product releases is a little shorter than usual, but still worth a quick look.

The April schedule of free public lectures at London's Gresham College is now available - see their website, here.

The Birmingham & Midland Society for Genealogy & Heraldry has a number of items available at bargain prices on their website - including over 15,000 unwanted BMD certificates.

Your Family Tree magazine has a set of free downloads available. Very nice!

The Genealogy Workshop blog has a neat weekly summary, here (including lots of stuff on copyright issues - see the 'comments' on the post, too). There is also a special look at 'In Memoriam' cards.

Some industrial artwork news now, and it may be worth keeping an eye out for this collection of works when it goes on tour.

CILIP's 'Local Studies Group blog' has recently featured a couple of posts concerning the copying of newspapers. Part 2 is here - with a link to part 1 available, too.

TNA's latest podcast can be found here.

Those of you eagerly awaiting the release of the 1940 US Census may be interested in this fantastic-looking piece of news from MyHeritage.

Finally, a reminder that you can get 10% off any FindMyPast subscription until 28th March by using the code SOCIAL10 at checkout - follow this link to take advantage.
