New Bletchley Park web page from BBC

The BBC has created a new site dedicated to the World War 2 code-breaking statioon at Bletchley Park, which can be found at www.bbc.co.uk/history/places/bletchley_park.

Recently on Twitter, myself and a group of other genealogists were having a conversation about Bletchley Park and were all a bit stunned to discover that each and every one of us had a relative who worked there, in my case my grandfather's cousin Catherine Paton. It made me wonder if the 1939 National Register wasn't in fact an enlistment roll for the centre, and that the whole nation wasn't employed there! :)


In June, Bletchley Park Museum announced it was digitising its entire archive over the next three years to place online, although some resources are already available on its website. To catch up on the story visit http://scottishancestry.blogspot.com/2010/06/bletchley-park-archive-to-be-digitised.html.
