Genealogy in the Sunshine: Tuesday

Rain overnight gave way to sunshine just in time for Debbie Kennett's beginner genetic genealogy session at 10 am. John Hanson started the afternoon with a talk on the census. He mentioned that the 1939 British National Registration will likely be available later this year; see the announcement from Findmypast at http://blog.findmypast.co.uk/2015/introducing-the-1939-register-exclusive-to-findmypast/ with information on redactions at http://blog.findmypast.co.uk/2015/redaction-and-the-1939-register/
I enjoyed talks by Debbie Kennett's on autosomal DNA and Else Churchill on Probate which has and is becoming an easier resource to exploit.
