A new 'Saturday series' (weekly tips for family historians) is now underway. It's very different from last year's series. To read the tips, go to my main Web site and use the link to my public page (anyone can see it - no need to join) on Facebook. - #genealogy

12-month Worldwide or UK Premium subscriptions to Ancestry are currently half price if you join via http://bit.ly/Ancuk50. Although that link is to the UK site & I'm in Australia, I was able to get the discount.

'Genealogy Discounts & Freebies' (updated today) lists 3 new short-term discounts (for NSW certificate transcriptions, Ancestry, & FamilyTreeDNA). I've personally taken advantage of all three. #genealogy

Court of Petty Sessions records cover minor cases (drunkenness, theft etc). Images of original records at the Public Record Office Victoria are now online, with defendants & complainants indexed. There are over 3 million records from 74 courts (dates ranging from 1854 to 1985). This is a very exciting resource, & I've already found about a hundred references for my family history. - #genealogy

2 million closed records in the England/Wales 1939 Register have been opened this week. Annotations revealed 3 marriages for one of my relatives! I love the fact that exact birth dates are shown (but I've seen a few that were wrong). #genealogy
