Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The National Archives blog had a post about the #hackon12 event held at the Archives. The post is called “#hackon12: We came, we saw, we didn’t sleep much.” They describe what went on and the items that came out of the event. This has some interesting prospects.

Irish Genealogy News has been busy again this week. They had a post called “Any Dublin police in your tree?” which talks about the digital availability of the Parish Watch collection for St. John’s Church in Dublin. This is a wonderful free resource made available on the Church of Ireland Representative Church Body Library website.

The backlash to the changes made by RootsIreland continues. Irish Genealogy News published the response of the Irish Genealogical Research Society to the recent changes in a post called “IGRS responds to ‘backward step’ by RootsIreland.”

The release of the 1940 US census yesterday has been the trending issue on many blogs this past week.
