Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from the last week.

There were three posts from British GENES this week. The first is “Old TNA catalogue to be switched off.” Tomorrow the TNA will start their new Discovery catalogue.

The other two posts were called “Democratising or Privileging archive conference in Dundee” and “Democratising or Privileging archives conference – day 2.” These are two very interesting posts about what he learned at the conference. There were quite a few Canadian archives presenting as well. There is an interesting take of Library and Archives Canada. Library and Archives Canada has lost its reputation on the international stage not to mention at home.

Irish Genealogy News has an interesting post called “Exploring Irish Identity – a free online course.” This looks really interesting and it starts on May 27th.

Congratulations FamilySearch and their dedicated volunteer indexers. You have reached the one billionth indexed record. “Thanks a Billion.”

Genealogy’s Star has an interesting post called “Is Genealogy History or is All History Genealogy?” Every genealogist needs to know about the history of the area where their ancestors lived and the era in which their ancestors lived. It can help answer a lot of questions.
