From the office: Don't miss our free online directory
If you’re suffering from a touch of the post-Christmas blues, there’s a whole host of new resources to explore online
I don’t know about you, but I’m suffering from a touch of the post-Christmas blues. But I’ve had a rummage around online and there are some things to look forward to in the near future...
Firstly, there is the new Ancestry.co.uk release of Outgoing Passenger Lists 1890-1960 which ties in nicely with the site’s Incoming Passenger Lists and will help you track your ancestors comings and goings to sunnier climes during these dark winter nights (Sarah has been following her ancestors going to and from India, America and Jamaica).
Then there’s the rapidly approaching Who Do You Think You Are? Live. I’ve been helping to put together the Show Guide over the past couple of weeks. With comprehensive listings of the exhibitors and workshops it’s essential for planning your trip to the show. You can get your free copy with the February issue (on sale 22 January).
If that isn’t enough to put a spring in your step, we’ve decided to put our Web Directory online for the first time. Those of you who prefer your information to be on a CD-Rom, it’s available on disc with the January issue’s bumper pack (on sale now). It’s a great resource. Whatever your area of research – from Adoption & Orphans to Youth Movements – you will find a link to a site that can give you the answers you need. There’s even a section on blogs including myself among others.

We’d like to hear your feedback about how we can improve it so once you’ve had a look please tell us your thoughts over on the forum.
