Mainly London News


Despite a good trawl around the Internet this morning, I couldn't come up with a great deal in the way of genealogy news - and most of what I found concerned the capital...


London's Gresham College has unveiled its schedule of May public lectures - listing is here, website is here.

Those with a research interest in Chelsea Pensioner records will want to check out this post from Chris Paton.

The 'A Rebel Hand' blog has a useful post for rookie London researchers.

Something else for Londoners: the Friends of Nunhead Cemetery Open Day.

The latest TNA Podcast is now available.

Another little round-up of history links has been laid on by the Two Nerdy History Girls - see here.

I always find 'The Armchair Genealogist's' Monday Morning Mentions worthy of a browse. One item from the same which I thought quite neat was 'How to write your life story in twenty statements'.

The final part of Nicola Elsom's series of articles about setting up a Wordpress blog can be found here.

And quite a few of the news items which popped up over the weekend can be found on the BI-Gen Twitter feed.


Oh, and don't forget...

Epitaph, source unknown...

By many folks it has been said,
"The only staff of life is bread";
How could it then stop Simon's breath,
And give him o'er to icy Death?
One little morsel prov'd his last,
Which he devour'd in so much haste;
That angry Death, in passion, swore
He ne'er should swallow one bit more.
