Articles this month
I've a few articles out this month, so a quick heads up...!
For the new issue of Your Family Tree (104) I've written the cover feature on using Irish records online, as well as an article on the 1911 Scottish census - what it's all about and how to use it. (www.yourfamilytreemag.co.uk)
In Discover my Past Scotland the current issue also has a background piece on the 1911 Scottish census, as well as the latest Scottish news and book reviews. Next month's issue (out next week) has an article on my trip to Brisbane in Queensland last October, and how I finally got to walk up Paton Street! (www.discovermypast.co.uk)
In Family Tree, there's all the latest UK genealogy news, including news of a Freedom of Information application rejection to a Welsh archive concerning school records and TNA's new leadership role in the archive sector. (www.family-tree.co.uk/this-month-ftm.html)
In Family History Monthly my internet review column looks at the new Connected Histories website, as well as the latest internet news, including additions to the Genealogy in Time and British History Online sites. (www.familyhistorymonthly.com)
The new issue of Your Family History contains an article on Scottish education - its history, the Kirk's and state's involvement, and also how to track records. (www.your-familyhistory.com)
And finally, in the newly released summer issue of Irish Roots I've submitted a piece about using the forms beyond Form A on the 1911 Irish census - if you've only looked at the householder's main return (Form A), you've potentially missed half the story! (www.irishrootsmedia.com)
Hope they help!
