Lanarkshire FHS Family History Fair in Motherwell

A quick heads up for Lanarkshire Family History Society's Family History Fair at Motherwell Concert Hall and Theatre on Saturday 23rd August, from 9.30am-4.30pm.

Last year this event was the phenomenal genealogy event of the year in Scotland, I've never seen an event here which generated such a buzz, so I'm looking forward to even more fun there this year! I'll be giving a talk there on Irish genealogy research, with other speakers including Fiona Watson, Irene O' Brien and Bruce Durie. There will be a whole host of exhibitors (including, I'm delighted to see, the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland), and various other activities including workshops and even butter churning and hands on weaving for the weans!

Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And FindmyPast - please reinstate the original Scottish census citations on your new site.
