As we approach Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday, which this year coincide, there is a special offer from Ancestry.co.uk. Searching World War One records will be free on the site from Friday 9 November until Monday 12 November.

The following records are included in the offer:

British Army WWI Service Records, 1914-1920

British Army WWI Medal Rolls Index Cards, 1914-1920
Silver War Badge Records, 1914-1920
Citations of the Distinguished Conduct Medal, 1914-1920

Since I uploaded that this morning, I have received an announcement that Ancestry,ca are giving free access to their military records.


ScotlandsPeople have added Scottish wills and testaments from 1902 to 1925.


The October issue of The Historian, as usual, contains the membership renewal notice. Current members wishing to pay online and take advantage of the prompt payment discount can do so by using the Registration Renewal form in the Members' Area.  Anyone who does not have a password for the Members' Area should request it before the end of November to be sure of receiving it in time.

A reminder also that the Centre closes at 4pm on Wednesday December 19th for the holiday break.

Tay Valley Family History Society continues our series of online talks for our members, of which this is the fifth, Our
newest talk is by our guest Jennifer Jolly, on 'Diana Rae, sea-captain's widow and her family’. Jennifer was researching 'at a distance' using materials online, and she gives much detail about
the resources she used, the places in her story (Montrose, St Cyrus, Edzell), the work of cross-
referencing to check 'facts' and even the way she has organised the materials she found. Lots
of tips here for all family researchers! The story of the research shows how persistence pays off
- and how answering one research question leads on to another! Available at  https://youtu.be/h-NUnNxTkWM

There is a Q&A zoom on this one, for which registration is available on our Members Noticeboard. Passed talks are also available on the Members Noticeboard. For access to this, you will be required to use your members access password to log in.

 Also, here is a video from David Dobson, our vice-president, promoting his new book on doing Family History, entitled "Scottish Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond". This is also on Youtube so you can view it at this link: https://youtu.be/lcxAgOFPUCU
