Plenty of Reading

Many of you may remember my short article on the subject of 'The English Diaspora' (see here). Well, the organisation concerned has published its May newsletter - click here and follow the relevant link.

The latest Parish Chest Newsletter is now available - remember to scroll down for all the new releases.

The latest Eneclann Newsletter has also been released, with its county focus on Kildare and Meath.

Another newsletter to hit the market is the British Library's 'Preservation Advisory Centre' bulletin.

Gresham College (London) has issued its list of free public lectures & events for June.

More entertainment is available via the latest TNA Podcast (colonial records).

The Two Nerdy History Girls have their regular round-up of history links, here.

A couple of pieces of Irish news from Claire Santry:

FamilySearch have made a long-overdue alteration to their online IGI - see here. Another interesting development at FamilySearch is the 'My Source Box' - announcement here.

Blogger Dick Eastman has brought to our attention an interesting video for the 'techies' among you relating to the computing power behind the genea giant brightsolid - see his post here.

A fair few other interesting news items and stories are available via the BI-Gen Twitter feed.

From Whitby Churchyard:

Sudden and unexpected was the end
Of our esteemed and beloved friend;
He gave all his friends a sudden shock,
By one day falling into Sunderland Dock.
