Something for the Weekend


With the approach of the Easter weekend, there'll be lots on offer of a historical nature over the coming days.  Most of our museums and historical venues put on 'family specials', of course; but there are plenty of other things to consider, too.  I expect you're keeping an eye out for local events, but there's a decent listing to be found here.

Additionally, there are three major book fairs of which I know, thus:-

Your Family History magazine is celebrating its first birthday with the release of Issue 14 - see here (well, it's actually out tomorrow, 21st), so you might want to treat yourself to a copy.

Diamond subscribers to TheGenealogist will be interested in the latest records release - a nice varied selection of military stuff.

Researchers with an interest in Liverpool or the Channel Islands will want to scrutinise the latest Ancestry update.

And Irish researchers should take note of the continuing partial closure of facilities at the National Archives of Ireland.


If you're still struggling for something to do, then take a look at the forthcoming TV & Radio schedule.

  2. Thanks, Judy. I will mention this on the main blog in case someone misses your comment. The Lost Cousins' Newsletter is worth a look, too.
