Edinburgh Agreement on independence displayed at Kew

The National Archives at Kew (www.nationalarchives.gov.uk) has placed the Westminster Government's copy of the recently signed Edinburgh Agreement between it and the Scottish Government on display at the facility, along with one of the pens that was used to sign it. The archive has the story at http://nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/779.htm.

Back in January I blogged some time back about the possible implications of Scottish independence on genealogists, including some thoughts on TNA and its role in terms of records involving Scotland, comparing it to similar events in the past with Ireland and Australia. The post is on my Walking in Eternity blog at http://walkingineternity.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/scottish-independence.html, which may be of interest.

Food for thought!
