Genealogy News - 22nd March

Still very quiet on the family history front. It's been a struggle to put together a decent report today! Anyway, here we go again...

Ancestry has some big news for Wiltshire researchers - check out their 'updates page'.

I'm a wee bit late with this news, but here goes... Claire Santry brings us some forthcoming Irish events. More interesting Irish news here.

New from Forces War Records: the British Jewry Book of Honour (WWI).

The April issue of HistoryToday magazine is now available.

FindMyPast looks into the family history of Theresa May.

Researchers interested in Wales and Northumberland may wish to check the latest update from FamilySearch.

About time I reminded you all of the latest newsletter from Electric Scotland - accessible via this link.

OK, so it's US-biased, but I see that Mocavo have unveiled their new genealogy 'Learning Centre'.

From James McLaren of the Channel Islands FHS...
This is two months off yet, but given people might need to arrange travel - CIFHS are running their Family History exhibition at St Helier Town Hall, Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May, 10am-4pm both days. We already have visitors lined up from France (we have a well-established link with the Cercle Genealogique de la Manche), and more news will be added to the website as we have it.

And here we go with the latest from the BBC's HistoryExtra website:

Yet more can be found at the BI-Gen Twitter feed.

I would remind folks of the chance to help charity and get themselves a family history publication or two by supporting my eBooks4Charity venture. Thanks!
