10% discount at FindMyPast has been extended by 3 days (now ends Mon 15th). Spread the word, because normal prices rise by 20% on the 16th. World subscriptions will soon include the 1939 Register, indexes to Irish Catholic parish registers, etc. Some of my other reasons for using & recommending FindMyPast are listed on http://genie-leftovers.blogspot.com/p/why-i-recommend-fmp.html.

Today's additions at FindMyPast include 2 that are exciting for my own family history: 39,000 records added to 'Queensland funerals', & 279,000 added to 'Greater London Burial Index'. Other additions: NZ birth, marriage & death indexes; Isle of Man births, baptisms, marriages, deaths & burials; and more Irish newspapers. #genealogy

The history of Australia Day - I didn't know this!
 
with Australia Day tomorrow, this seems appropriate ...
#australiaday   #australianhistory  
We all know that Australia Day is celebrated on 26 January ... right? Sure! But did you know that Australia Day wasn't always celebrated on this day?

I intend to temporarily reduce the price of one of my copying services for original records at Queensland State Archives. Check the list of indexed records (www.judywebster.com.au/other.html) & tell me which ones would interest you most if copies cost less. Add a comment here, & if you're lucky I may select the index/records that you nominate! #genealogy  
This leads to 53,000 names from Archives records (asylums, hospitals, pensions, missing persons, criminals etc) plus graves and certificates indexed for genealogy.

+Anne Hodges are you interested in any particular set of records that I've indexed (www.judywebster.com.au/other.html)? I still haven't decided which copying service should be discounted this month, so you might be able to influence my decision. ;-)

Today there's both good news & bad news from FindMyPast (one of my favourite genealogy Web sites) - but more good than bad, thankfully. #genealogy

230 names added to http://bit.ly/illJw, which helps family historians & others seeking birth parents to find Archives records that name the father of an illegitimate child. Most of these mothers & children lived in NSW or Queensland, but a few were in other States, NZ, Scotland, England, etc. #genealogy
