New Mag


I thought I should point out the existence of a magazine which I haven't previously mentioned, namely History Today.  It may be of interest to many of you, though I suppose you already know of its existence as it's been around since 1951!  Anyway, the website is here, and news of the recently-released April issue is here.

The latest TNA podcast can be found here ('Heralds & Heraldry at TNA').

There's a competition for you to have a go at here.

And just a reminder of the offer from Ancestry of free census access for tomorrow - see here.  I thought there may have been some more offers from the genealogical big-boys for 'census weekend', but it wasn't to be.


The usual weekly round-up of 'History Headlines' from the BBC can be found here.


Death of...
David Lloyd George, in 1945, aged 82;
Noel Coward, in 1973, aged 73.

1885:  UK's first official legal cremation, in Woking;
1934:  Driving tests introduced in the UK.
