Any one with connections to Montrose may be interested in a new book, published by Montrose Basin Heritage Society, on the history of the town and surrounding area. It is the third history book produced by MBHS, and will be officially launched on the 23rd October 2012. Called Vikings to Victorians - Eye-Witnesses to Montrose History, and retailing at £8.99, it will be available from both the MBHS and commercial retailers. More details can be found on the MBHS website, where their is also information about the two earlier books.
Previous jottings have reported on free access to the 1911 census for England and Wales on Ancestry.co.uk which is due to end on 2nd November. The Genes Reunited site is offering free access to transcriptions of the same census until 18th November, though you have to pay to view the images. You have to register first, but that too is free.
My last Jotting also said that findmypast.co.uk was the only one of the findmypast group of sites not to offer a world subscription. That has now changed, and you can buy one here.
PS Shortly after uploading this note, I received an email announcing that findmypast.co.uk has the same offer for the 1911 census as Genes Reunited.
