This website gives details of genealogical events and activities that are taking place in the UK. It is a useful site as you can find out what is happening in the coming months – have a look, you may find a local event that interests you, or something that is worth travelling to.
The following sad news appears on their website:
The Trustees of the Catholic National Library announce that the Library will be closed until further notice from Friday 27th June 2014. From this date it will not be possible to reply to emails, postal enquiries or telephone calls. Books already on loan may be returned by post. As soon as a decision has been made about the future of the Library an announcement will be made and the Trustees will write to members.
Let’s hope that something can be done to retain this useful library and collection.
Of interest to those with Catholic ancestors in the Ribble Valley in Lancashire the following book is available in the Internet Archive.
In chapter 1, General History, there is information about the recusants of the parish including lists starting from 1667 on page 29 to 1716 on page 32.
Thanks to Sylvia Dibbs for pointing this out to me.
