Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The Ancestry Insider had a two part blog post on called “IGI Q and A” scroll down to see part one.

The National Archives blog had several posts this week that caught my eye. The first was called “James Bond, the Cold War diaries and spying in Kew” which looks at records that are available in case you have a James Bond in your family tree. The other is called “Swan Song” which talks about the young swans living in the grounds of the TNA. It is nice to know they have grown up and are getting ready to fly to new pastures.

The last post was “To keep or not to keep? Records appraisal and moving house.” This is a great post and makes you think about appraising the value of your household contents. This post makes me want to go through my family archives and appraise my documentation. Maybe I can create some space for new treasures.

John Reid of the Anglo-Celtic Connections blog announced he will be giving a presentation at the Who Do You Think You Are? Live show in London 22-24 February 2013.

If you are thinking about attending and have Irish research that needs to be done then you might like to join my genealogy tourism group “Touring the Research Trail in Dublin” which starts right after the Who Do You Think You Are? Live show.
