Scottish News + More

A wee blast of news from Scotland...

Scottish researchers will want to cast their eyes over the April issue of the Scottish Association of FHS's bulletin.

The National Library of Scotland has launched a new blog for family and local historians - and very interesting it is, too!

The ScotlandsPeople Centre is hosting a Titanic display until late May - see here.

And from elsewhere...

Ancestry have added new West Yorkshire non-conformist records to their website - see their 'updates page'.

I seem to have overlooked a few additions to TheGenealogist's datasets (Dorset/Winchester/Worcestershire material + Titanic stuff) - see here.

If you're interested in the topic of online access to archival data from a providers' point of view, then you may wish to click through to the Archives Discovery Forum 2012 website - where you will find plenty of leads to follow through (including a link to TNA's website, where copies of the presentations are available).

'Ruth's Recommendations' provides a summary of genealogy posts from the past week, including mention of the 'was Dracula Irish?' story which is doing the rounds.

Claire Santry has flagged a special offer from Irish Roots magazine. Claire also brings us news of an important Irish oral histories project launch.

There's more news re. the release of TNA's 'colonial administration records'.

Fancy a history crossword? Try this.

And, of course, more news is available via BI-Gen's Twitter feed.

The Genealogist - UK census, BMDs and more online

Not for the easily offended...
