Ruth’s Recommendations

Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.

The National Archives blog had a post called “Discovery: the story so far” about their new catalogue called Discovery and how the upgrade is going.

The National Library of Ireland blog had two posts this week. The first was “My name is Jean, and I am a Family History Workshopaholic.” I can relate to Jean because I am a family history webinar and podcast “aholic.” It would be nice if the National Library of Ireland recorded these workshops as podcasts. This way we could all enjoy them no matter where we lived.

The other post was “Pettyfoggers and Vipers” which is about lawyers and the legal profession in Dublin. This is of interest to me as there are a lot of Dublin lawyers in my family history. This makes me want to take another trip to Dublin to see what else I can find.

Irish Genealogy News had two posts this week. The first was “TABs: missing parishes and corrections” which looks at the Tithe Applotment Books just released online by the National Archives of Ireland.

The second post is “Coming Soon….” which looks at the new databases that are to be released by the National Archives of Ireland and the timetable for their release.

Inside History Magazine blog has a new Q&A post called “Expert Q&A: Preserving your paper & photographic artefacts.”
