Forthcoming Events of Interest ... and 10% Off!

As per usual for a Tuesday, I've put together a list of forthcoming events which the family historian may be interested in. PLEASE, if anybody knows of any more, do let me know - my email is at the top of the RH column...

You can get 10% off any FindMyPast subscription until 28th March by using the code SOCIAL10 at checkout - follow this link to take advantage. I would certainly recommend you give them a try - even on one of the low-end packages for starters. Over the course of, say, a year, the records which are available at your fingertips will save you many, many miles (and the expense) of travelling. Just a thought.

The demise of  Family History Monthly magazine will have caught the eye of many of you - the final issue having just been issued, in fact. Blogger Chris Paton explains the situation beautifully, here.

Another splendid effort by the above named has resulted in a lengthy list of handy links for those interested in accessing Irish probate calendars. Claire Santry has a related post on her blog, here.

A new podcast from TNA is now online ('Digitised newspapers as sources for family history').

TNA has also released details of two children's books it has published in tandem with Bloomsbury Publishing - both on the subject of the Titanic.

I see that the well-established genealogy firm JiGraH Resources have been swallowed up by MyHistory - the announcement on the former's website says it all.

And you may wish to take in 'Ruth's Recommendations' for the week. Actually, the very same blogger also has a sort of 'Introduction to wikis' for the genealogisthere, which you might find interesting.
