Two New Record Sets From FindMyPast

The family history world is finally beginning to awaken from its Easter slumber. First out of the blocks is FindMyPast with the release of the 1901 Scottish Census - read all about it here.

FindMyPast have also released new Manchester Naturalisation Society records - announcement here.

It's still not too late to tag along to one of three remaining events as publicised on The Scottish Genealogy Society's website. The society's next meeting is on 16th April, then there's the SAFHS Conference on 21st April ... and they're holding a family history taster session on 28th April. See their website for further details.

Northumbria University (Newcastle) is hosting a conference on the subject of English migration on Saturday 21st April entitled In Search of the Missing England. The event is free, but you must register by 14th April - see here.

There's a little Titanic news round-up, here. And FindMyPast Ireland also have a summary of Titanic-related stuff here.

Signed copies of Nick Barratt's book, Tracing the History of Your House, are available from here. Oh, and here's another book of his: Lost Voices from the Titanic.

If the subject of the Luddites interests you, then check out this piece on the HistoryToday website.

I see there's a new mobile travel app for Moray, Scotland.

Digital preservation is the subject of this post on TNA's blog.

And don't forget the start of a new series of Long Lost Family tonight (Thursday) at 9pm on ITV1!
