Irish 1926 Census News


The Irish Genealogy News blog has reported on the latest developments in the planned digitisation - by the Irish government - of the 1926 Census. Seems like another delay ... read all about it here.

The same blog also has news of a special genealogy night in Dublin this Wednesday.

Londoners may wish to peruse the latest offerings from Gresham College (free public lectures!).

With opening hours at most of our libraries, archives and record offices severely affected by the planned strike action this Wednesday (30th), reader James McLaren informs us that Jersey Archive will, it seems, be open as normal (but check anyway, just in case). However, the same institution WILL be closed during the week commencing 5th December for stocktaking. It will also be closed from 22nd December to 2nd January for the Festive period.

The National Archives are running an online survey.


Irish researchers may want to follow The Passionate Genealogist's advice about the Irish Archives Resource website.

And mention of The Historical Diving Society has appeared on the SoG blog.


There a little piece about Walt Disney's ancestry, here.


A short interview with a producer/director of the FindMyPast TV show can be found here.
