There have been a number of additions to the offerings of the major commercial providers this week. Two that look interesting are British Origins addition of Middlesex & London Burials 1538-1904 and the UK, Land Tax Redemption, 1798 at Ancestry.co.uk.
British genealogy blogs I have enjoyed reading this week include:
- James Daly at the Daly History Blog - Ancestry or Find My Past? A dilemma
- on a related note Chris Paton summarised the upcoming digitisation projects from TNA – TNA user group update
- Emma Jolly’s guest post on British Genes Guest post – Women in India was interesting
- Suzie Grogan’s post Telling ‘Sarah’s Story’ – finding truth in family history was a good example of the benefits of persistence when researching our families
- I have been researching wills myself this week, so was interested to hear what Martin Robb had to say on Analysing the will of William Barlow
- and lastly, being an Essex girl, I found myself talking to my laptop as I tried out examples of the Tudor Essex dialect given in the Essex Voices Past post Transcript fo. 5r: Great Dunmow’s Tudor dialect
This week I also read…
Alex Coles’ resource on the One Place Studies site - UK Copyright Considerations for Records of Public Bodies. As a new blogger I have been trying to work out what information and images I can include in my blog. I have noticed that quite a few bloggers post images of records and certificates, which I have generally avoided, even though they would obviously add interest to the blog. I would be interested to hear comments/advice on this subject from other UK bloggers.
I have posted this week about…
my plans to improve my use of TMG in Getting to grips with The Master Genealogist – Introduction, and as part of my Killing Off My Ancestors project I have been researching wills, but my post on that subject will have to wait until my wills arrive, so this week I also took a look at “In Memoriam” Cards.
If I have missed out any of your favourite UK genealogy blogs this week, let me know below!
