This is an Australian website, but it's a great general resource for family history material: Trove. Give it a try. [thanks to @BMSGH on Twitter]

Here's an interesting story about the demise of the British Empire & Commonwealth Museum - follow Chris Paton's lead-in, here.

I have been asked to give a quick mention to a new surname distribution & mapping service called 'Surname Origins' - covering the US, England, Ireland and/or Scotland. Not tried it myself, but you can check it out here.

Several sources have pointed out that the Library of the Society of Friends (Quakers) has launched a new blog - see here.

This is from a week or so ago: the release of the latest issue of Ireland's Genealogical Gazette.

More news at the BI-Gen Twitter feed.

Two 'Questionable Advertisements' now...
