Now that the UK election is over!

British law places restrictions on government announcements during a General Election. For the (UK) National Archives this was interpreted as a virtual embargo on any announcement. While presentations held in the building at Kew continued no new podcasts were placed online. We have a backlog of these to look forward to.

The folks from Findmypast warned me to expect delays in release of digitized and indexed Chelsea Pensioners British Army Service Records too. It's a cooperative program with TNA. It didn't take long to add 97,515 records of men who were pensioned out of the British Army between 1873 and 1882.
