I took my first look at Chris Paton's ScottishGENES blog this morning since returning from holiday and, surprise, surprise, found myself with plenty of news to trawl through. So if you didn't keep abreast of Mr Paton's trusty efforts whilst I was away, then you may want to have a look for yourself now. Failing that, I've picked out a few highlights...
- ScotlandsPeople Centre update;
- A pointer to an interesting 'What is Britain?' presentation (with some equally interesting 'comments' banter!);
- A great offer from AncestralScotland;
- Scottish WWI Pensions Appeal Tribunals records;
- More news on the forthcoming Irish Family & Local History Handbook.
A couple of events for the weekend...
And the British Library has launched its 'eBook Treasures' for the iPad - see here.
An important new blog has popped up relating to Jewish ancestry. The Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain is the organisation in question, and their new blog can be found here.
Family history matters are making their way onto the small screen increasingly these days, it seems, and who are we to complain? Latest news in this respect is the new 'Find My Past' programme to be shown on cable channel 'Yesterday' from 20th October. Chris Paton explains all here, including the contents of the lengthy press release.
