Genealogy News - 8th February

In the current climate it is something of a wonder that the powers-that-be are even allowing us to celebrate our libraries tomorrow, on what is being billed as 'National Libraries Day'. Check out the dedicated website and see if you can get along to an event to show your support.

Ancestry's latest release is their Manchester Parish Records Collection 1541-1985.

More news about TNA's catalogue, Discovery, can be found here.

Thanks to @ARebelHand on Twitter (and others) for pointing out that the latest issue of the free online magazine, Irish Lives Remembered, is now available.

The latest bulletin from Parish Chest is now available (remember to scroll down for the latest releases).

Essex researchers will want to check out the latest newsletter from the Essex Record Office.

Staffordshire researchers will be interested to note that a major digitisation project of the county's archives is in the early stages of planning - thanks to Claire Santry for flagging the relevant link, here.

More historical tax rolls have been added to the ScotlandsPlaces website (follow link and see left-hand side).

TNA's February e-newsletter is now up for grabs.

I am sure that you will all find this relationship calculator helpful.

The usual Friday stuff from the BBC:

Don't forget the BI-Gen Twitter feed for the latest news.

And finally, can I remind all you genealogy-related businesses out there about yesterday's brief post.

From 'Forces War Records'...
