Family History Monthly issue 183

Family History Monthly issue 183 (June 2010) landed through my letterbox today, and this month is an Irish special. I've written for the magazine in the past, but as of this edition, I am now writing the Online section of the magazine, and so to tie in with the special this shuggy/Paddy hybrid has produced a write up of all the latest online Irish developments as well as an indepth guide to the PRONI website from Belfast. Also on the Irish front, Ian Maxwell provides a beginner's guide to tracing Irish ancestors (including a very handy research directory), Joe O' Neill goes in search of Irish emigrants and Catherine Allington goes in search of Irish ancestors in Montana.

But it's not just Ireland that gets a fair wind this month. Keith Gregson visits the National Maritime Museum in Cornwall, Karen Foy looks at the invention of the lawnmower and the history of vetinary surgeons, whilst Ben Palfreyman looks at West Coventry FHS.

Last, and certainly not least, this issue also sees the first in another new regular column, from my southern based matey Bob Blatchford, editor of the Family and Local History Handbook and organiser of the National Family History Fair. Each month Bob will be sharing his thoughts on the genealogy world at large, and this month he gives his perspective on the changing nature of family history fairs and the new price rises from the English GRO for certificates.

Family History Monthly - £3.75 and packed with goodies!
