Who Do You Think You Are? Live have put a recording from this year’s show online, with the promise of more to follow, John Hanson’s Workshop, “Why can’t I find them in the Civil Registration Indexes?” is well worth a listen, although the background noise is horrible.
The Society of Genealogists announced additions to their online data collection, full details on the Society of Genealogists website.
Findmypast.co.uk have added two Royal Artillery datasets, Medals 1916-1993 and Honours and Awards 1939-1946, full details available at findmypast news.
British genealogy blogs I have enjoyed reading this week include:
- The Wandering Genealogist, read the latest in his “Finding Minnie” series, Contacting my newly found cousins brings rewards
- MadderGenealogist, who has written this week about Using Tithe Maps
- Essex Voices Past, especially her Tuesday’s Tip: Primary sources and Old handwriting (palaeography)
- finally a big thank you to Mick at BI-Gen for supporting my blog this week, you can catch up on the latest news at British & Irish Genealogy
And two international blogs relevent to us all:
- Nolichucky Roots on genealogy database software in Getting Down to Basics
- Randy at Genea-Musings writes on Ten Reasons Why I Use a Genealogy Software Program
I shall be following this discussion closely, as I am about to embark on a project to improve the way I use my genealogy software.
I have been busy this week searching in online parish registers:
- for more, read the imaginatively titled, Online Parish Registers
- I also wrote about my research using death certificates in Killing Off My Ancestors – Part 3: Death Certificates
I would be delighted to hear about your favourite genealogy blogs and articles this week, feel free add a comment and a link.
