Archive Move, Welsh Stuff & Libraries

It has been announced that the Leeds branch of the West Yorkshire Archive Service is to close/move.

FindMyPast have been busy again. Latest news from their stable concerns the release of 2 million new Welsh records - see here. Remember that if you subscribe to before the end of 1st July you will get 10% off by using the discount code JUNE10OFF - subscription options here.

There's a worrying story on the 'Public Libraries News' blog. Something's gotta give ... will it be the public sector spending cuts, or will it be the rest of our libraries!?! Check out the item here.

A couple more 'Ask the Photo Expert' posts have appeared on the FMP site.

Big news concerning the GRO Northern Ireland has been reported by Chris Paton.

There's more Olympic stuff here (and prepare for much more, no doubt, soon!).

Following yesterday's brief mention, there's more info to be found re. MyHeritage's new SuperSearch feature at the organisation's blog.

Ancestry have unveiled their latest record set: London Land Tax Records, 1692-1932.

And if you're a heavy user of the Ancestry website, then you may wish to follow John D Reid's advice.

Map freaks may be interested to learn of the latest developments in 3D mapping (involving my home town, too!) - see here.

Another idea for your memoirs...
