St.George's Day, Kent, FMP Offer + more...

Today is St.George's Day, of course - the day when William Shakespeare somewhat appropriately died (and also possibly born!). The National Archives' latest newsletter leads with details of the Bard's famous will, here. More St.George's stuff here.

I see the brand new Kent History and Library Centre has opened today in Maidstone - I first spotted the story here.

Irish researchers may wish to take a quick look at Eneclann's latest newsletter, which includes important news of the forthcoming History Festival of Ireland at Rathvilly on 9th & 10th June.

The May issue of the WDYTYA? Magazine is now on the market. And the May issue of Your Family Tree Magazine is also available - best go in via their handy 'downloads page' (yeah, free stuff!).

There's a women's history website/blog which will interest many of you at Chick History (thanks to Ros Bott).

Check out 'Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee Scrapbook 1897'.

Some great history articles can be found via the Two Nerdy History Girls weekly round-up.

And the Armchair Genealogist's 'Monday Morning Mentions' are always worth a look.

Oh, and more news available via the BI-Gen Twitter feed.
