Channel Isles Monthly Review on TheGenealogist

The latest newsletter from TheGenealogist website is now available at There's news of the new DNA service, some London parish records transcripts and directories, and more.

The one item that particularly took my interest though was the last item, on a newspaper called the Channel Isles Monthly Review. The title helped to keep many ex-residents of the Channel Islands up to date with births, marriages and deaths, and other stories, during the German occupation of the Channel Islands in the Second World War. The site has copies of several editions from November 1941 to May 1945, hosted within its newspapers section, and hopes to place more online in due course. Sounds like quite a useful wartime resource.
