Genealogy News - 12th October

First of all may I offer my apologies for any disruption to your digital world caused by the recent (and, indeed, on-going) redesign of the blog. Not a great deal has changed content-wise, and I'm still in the process of clearing out the dead links in the tabbed sections above. Also trying to get the 'e-books for charity' idea up and running, too - more on that next week. OK, let's get on with it...

DeceasedOnline have now uploaded all records for their 'Greenwich Cemetery Collection' spanning 1856-1902.

FindMyPast have added 56 million new Australian & New Zealand records.

Episode 11 of 'The Family History Show' is now available online (Hertfordshire researchers take note!).

Little bit of a run of activity at the WDYTYA? website:

I think I should give the SoG's Open Day another mention (Monday 15th October).

The latest edition of Ireland's Genealogical Gazette is available here.

And Irish folk may be interested in the new genea-based TV show, The Gathering: Homeward Bound - see here and here (thanks Chris and Claire)

Here's a new '1930s Britain' resource from TNA.

Thanks to blogger Claire Santry for highlighting this series of lectures in Belfast.

Family historians who use both Ancestry and Facebook may be interested in this announcement.

The folks at Your Family Tree Magazine have details of their latest issue, here, + free downloads, here.

A new issue of History Today magazine has also been released.

From the BBC's HistoryExtra website:

More news, etc., at the BI-Gen Twitter feed.

Civilised servants?!...
