This may sound like a very lazy way to update you all on recent Irish news, but nobody covers the subject better than Claire Santry on her Irish Genealogy News blog. Just in case you haven't been keeping tabs on her scribblings over the past few days then click here and scroll back through her recent news items (includes stuff on NLI workshops; Olympics; Irish GRO shenanigans; new RTE website; Tipperary & Limerick records; new Irish World Heritage Centre; Waterford marriages; Irish National Heritage Week; and PRONI September lectures.

Another useful site for Scottish (Shetland) research can be found here. [Thanks to Christine Woodcock]

A useful resource for English/Welsh research has been flagged by Audrey Collins, here and here.

That's quite a bit covered, so I think we'll call it a day - but I'll be back with another bumper post on Monday. In the meantime, I'll be tweeting an oddment or two at the BI-Gen Twitter feed.

Another one from the excellent 'Questionable Advice & Advertisements' blog...
