Thanks to Glasgow and West of Scotland FHS - & new CD

A huge thanks to Glasgow and West of Scotland Family History Society for its warm welcome last night at Hillhead Library, where I gave a talk on some online resources that tie into what is available on ScotlandsPeople, but which take the research journey a bit further. I last spoke there about a year and a half ago, and the subject was online Irish research resources, which got a packed audience (always one of the more popular talks I give in Scotland!). Last night however, was equally as packed with its attendance, certainly a thriving society! Keep an eye out on its website (www.gwsfhs.org.uk), because the society will soon be moving to new premises for its monthly talks, within the next couple of months or so.

Also, I said I'd give them a quick plug for a new product! The society has just released a new CD - The Glasgow Necropolis: 7,000 Photographs and Transcriptions of the Monuments within Glasgow. Price TBA, and it will be released in November through the website as noted above.

Thanks again folks!
