Quiet Day - but not for the Irish!

Not a huge amount of genealogy news around today (though Ireland does OK), but I'll give you what I've got...

The future of our libraries is once again brought into focus by the excellent Public Libraries News blog - see a summary of the recent Surrey Libraries court case and a piece on our non-action government minister, Ed Vaizey.

The latest PRONI / OUI lecture on 'Urban History' is now online at YouTube. Click on the PRONIonline channel, and you will see the presentation divided into six parts.

FindMyPast Ireland has a blog post from Fiona Fitzsimons on the subject of Griffith's Valuation.

Blogger Claire Santry points us in the direction of another source of material for Irish researchers, here. And there's also an appeal for info on the Irish Civil War of 1922-23 on the same blog.

In honour of ANZAC Day, Ancestry are offering free access to many of their military records during 25th-29th April - see here.

Those of you with an interest in the genealogy website or the specialist genealogy search engine Mocavo should read this post on the latter's blog.

The HistoryToday website has released its latest Podcast.

And that's all for today. More minor news and stories can be found on the BI-Gen Twitter feed.

The Genealogist - UK census, BMDs and more online

Sorry, but I'm not being deliberately sexist again...

Just to balance it out, check out the photo on this blog post from Ruth Blair...
