FREE Scots and Irish Magazines at PressReader

I've enthused about PressReader available for free through the Ottawa Public Library and many Southern Ontario public library systems at home online. I mentioned the British genealogy magazine Why Do You Think You Are? and BBC History Magazine.

Also available is Ireland of the Welcomes. While the magazine is not specifically for family history the latest issue has an article on Dr Barnardo, whose organization brought 10s of thousands of children and young adults to Canada. There's also an interesting article on the
Kerry Camino - a three-day hike going across the Dingle peninsula.

The Scots Magazine has articles on Scotland's National Library, the Battle of Dunbar and, again for the energetic, suggests for out of the way places which could be the most memorable of your Scottish family history trip.

If you'd like yo know more the OPL is running a drop-in session on How to Access Online Magazines and Newspapers at the Hunt Club Riverside Park Community Centre, 3320 Paul Anka Drive, 2:30 to 3:30 on Monday, 30 March.
