Genealogy News - 19th October

First of all, a big THANK YOU to those who have sent me messages of support re. the new e-Books4Charity venture - especially those who have bought a book or two! Prospective e-book authors (as well as potential customers) please call in and have a look around.

The genealogy world has not exactly been overflowing with major headlines this week. Anyway, here's what I have for you...

FindMyPast and GenesReunited are offering free access to transcripts of the 1911 Census for England/Wales/Channel Islands/Isle of Man until 18th November. In addition to this they have also reduced the cost of viewing the original images.

DeceasedOnline have added Woolwich Cemetery records to their holdings.

If you want to catch up on this week's WDYTYA? episode, see here.

A few items from The National Archives:

Thanks to @scotsdiaspora on Twitter for pointing out next month's 'Scotland's History Festival'.

Here are a few (of the many) announcements from Claire Santry's Irish Genealogy News blog this week:

And from the BBC's HistoryExtra site:

The BI-Gen Twitter feed will bring you more news over the weekend. If I get any.

Now available on Kindle:

Please leave some feedback on the Amazon website if you've bought a Kindle product of mine. 
BTW, you don't need a Kindle Reader to buy a Kindle version of a book - see here for the 'Kindle for PC' app ... it's what I use - Mick
