New FindMyPast Stuff + Forthcoming Events

FindMyPast have today released two new batches of records:

And, remember, you can currently get 10% off all FindMyPast subscriptions by using the promotional code APRSUB10 (until 6th May).

Forthcoming events of interest to the family historian...

One or two of the above require booking - but there's still time if you're quick.

Chris Paton's BritishGENES blog carries a piece on the possibility of a Scottish WDYTYA? Live Fair - see here. How very interesting!

The new 'Volunteering for Shropshire's Heritage' initiative has just been launched - a scheme which will last for three years and involves encouraging people to help catalogue, digitise and exhibit some of the county's archive collection. Click here for further info. [note: please don't wait for such schemes to come along - do ask at your local archive department if you can help out in any way in this regard]

Blogger John D Reid details recent updates to the FreeBMD website. The site itself can be found here.

There's a report on the Scottish Association of FHS's Conference from Chris Paton available here.

Irish researchers may be interested in this handy summary of recent developments at Ancestry.

Irish alumni records have popped up on the AncestryIreland.com website - see here.

Part 3 of Nicola Elsom's 'Getting to Grips With the Master Genealogist' is now available.
