NEW PBS SHOW --- & --- NEW UK SITE



 The new PBS genealogy series "Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr." 
debuts Sunday, March 25 at 8 p.m. 
 
 The 10-part series will explore the genealogy and genetics of famous Americans 
including Kevin Bacon, Robert Downey Jr., Branford Marsalis, John Legend, Martha 
Stewart, Barbara Walters and Rick Warren. 
 
 On the show's website, you can learn more about the research team (the New 
England Historic Genealogical Society staff did a lot of work for the series) 
and share your story. 

Thanks to  Marti Lewis for this tidbit. 

Then wander over and see what else is now available for British Isles, etc.

On Linkedin.com there was a discussion on research in the world area.  

A post that there is a new source for British research.

Society of Genealogists, a British organization is placing many of 
their library books on-line.

It is a pay site but it covers the British Isles and some of Ireland. 

The url is SOG.org.UK for information.
 
This is not a new group but new data they are putting on line.

I have scoped out this site and it is loaded with data and works with
findmypast.com 

Some great downloads to be hand here.


Having always recommended wordgenweb.org for world search this may be a great place to look.
