Visit to Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow

I had a great time earlier today visiting the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow (https://rcpsg.ac.uk), as part of a tour organised for the Scottish Genealogy Network (www.scottishgenealogynetwork.co.uk). We were met by one of the librarians and shown around the facility on Glasgow's St. Vincent Street.

First established in 1599 in Glasgow's Trongate area, the college has evolved over time with regards to its training role. At one time barbers were trained there, as well as surgeons, and the college also had premises for a time in the St. Enoch's Square area of the city, before arriving at its current location in the 19th century.

Today the facility deals with postgraduate tuition, and has a superb archive and library service, which we were keen to get our hands on! For a quick run down of its history, see https://rcpsg.ac.uk/college/about/history.

On our travels we were shown the Livinsgtone Room, dedicated to the memory of explorer Dr. David Livingstone, and various other museum items and rooms along the way. I grabbed a few images to give you a flavour:



Of course, the library was the the main jewel from our family historian based perspective, where we were shown several items such as class cards, which students collected after attending each class for their studies, registration rolls, vaccination registers and more.



My own five times great uncle, Dr. William Henderson, is someone that I have been researching for many years, and I was delighted to find an article that he wrote in the Edinburgh Medical Journal from 1822 that I had not come across before, about a "Case of Amaurosis", as well as another version of an article he wrote about a caesarean birth which he was also involved in during the 1820s, which I had previously located in The Lancet.



A superb facility which I must return to one day to carry out some additional research! Note that many archival items in the college's collection have been digitised and can be freely viewed at https://rcpsg.ac.uk/library/digital-volumes.

Thanks again as ever to Emma Maxwell for arranging, and to the college staff for a superb experience. If interested in finding out more about the SGN, please visit the website mentioned above.

Memory of a Nation exhibition in Canberra

The National Archives of Australia  has announced news of an update to its Memory of a Nation exhibition in Canberra:

Sex education, Chinese Anzacs, Advance Australia Fair and CWA activism are some of the new topics on show in our refreshed Memory of a Nation exhibition.

Every year we update this permanent exhibition, replacing selected exhibits to ensure their ongoing preservation.

The exhibition now includes posters warning of the dangers of venereal disease at a time when the government feared the infections coming back with World War II soldiers would cause infertility in the community and limit population growth. However a letter from the Department of Health shows it was still reluctant to introduce sex education in schools in 1943.

And we look at Chinese Anzacs. During World War I, five sons enlisted from the Sam family. With a white Australian mother and a Chinese father, the sons were seen as ‘sufficiently European’ to serve overseas with the AIF. At the same time, their young brother Percy and father William needed to travel to China and came up against the White Australia policy.

Other new exhibits show the 11-year journey for Advance Australia Fair to replace God Save the Queen as the country’s national anthem and a fresh look at the Country Women’s Association and its political activism.

New online family tree consistency checker on MyHeritage

My Heritage (www.myheritage.com) has announced that it is adding a facility to its online family tree hosting facility which has previously been available on its Family Tree Builder programme. From the announcement:

The Consistency Checker employs 36 different checks on the family tree data, ranging from the obvious (e.g., a person was born before their parent, or when the parent was too young to be a parent) to the subtle and hard to find (e.g., a person was tagged in a photo and the photo is dated before the person’s birth; or two full siblings were born 5 months apart, which is impossible). Some of the issues it finds are factual mistakes (e.g. wrong birth date entered), some are bad practices (e.g. birth year entered as 22 instead of 1922, or prefix entered as part of the first name instead of in the prefix field), some are warnings about possible data entry errors (e.g. a woman’s married surname was apparently entered as her maiden surname, or a place was entered that looks suspiciously like a date) and some are inconsistencies you may want to fix, such as references to the same place name with two different spellings. Any issue you feel is fine and should intentionally not be addressed can easily be marked to be ignored and will not be reported again.

The full announcement is available at https://blog.myheritage.com/2017/02/new-online-family-tree-consistency-checker/

PRONI adds Hillsborough disaster lecture to YouTube

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland has added a new recorded lecture to its online YouTube collection:

Hillsborough - Researching 'Truth', Delivering 'Justice'

Ninety-six people died following a crush at Hillsborough on 15 April 1989 during a match between Liverpool FC and Nottingham Forest. In April 2016, an inquest jury concluded the fans were unlawfully killed.

Author of the highly acclaimed Hillsborough: The Truth (new edition 2016), Phil Scraton headed the Panel’s research and was primary author of its report. Having worked with the families and survivors since 1989, he was advisor to the families’ legal teams throughout the inquests. In this public lecture he reflects on the long-term campaign for truth, details the Panel’s extensive findings, analyses the new inquests, their outcome, the work of the IPCC and the case for prosecutions. Finally, he examines the impact of his critical research and truth recovery for challenging institutional injustice and holding State institutions to account.

Phil Scraton PhD is Professor of Criminology in the Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice, School of Law, Queen’s University, Belfast and Director of the Childhood, Transition and Social Justice Initiative.

Capuchin Annual 1930-1977 online

The Capuchin Annual from 1930-1977 is now digitised and freely available online on www.capuchinfranciscans.ie/capuchin-annual-1930-1977/.

From the site:

The Capuchin Annual was published by the Irish Capuchin Franciscans from 1930 until 1977. Although its readership was predominately Irish, its circulation was international as it was frequently sent to Irish emigrants particularly in North America and in Australia. It was a journal unique in Irish publishing containing many literary, historical, photographic, theological, biographical and artistic articles. It claimed a readership of 25,000 worldwide at the height of its success in the 1950s. The publication only ever had two editors, Fr. Senan Moynihan OFM Cap. (1900-1970), and Fr. Henry Anglin OFM Cap. (1910-1977). The distinctive cover illustration of St Francis and the wolf was designed by Seán O’Sullivan RHA (1906-1964). Many Irish writers, artists and educators who later rose to prominence such as Benedict Kiely, Pearse Hutchinson, Francis Stuart, Daniel Corkery, Francis MacManus, Richard J. King, Thomas MacGreevey and Augustine Martin received their first opportunities to publish with the Annual. Throughout its publication run it maintained a very high quality of contributions by leading politicians and writers. The Annual frequently reflected a very strong nationalistic theme. The 1942 and 1966 editions of The Capuchin Annual are particularly well-known as they contained detailed articles, profusely illustrated, on the 1916 Rising. The complete collection of The Capuchin Annual is now being made freely available online solely for scholarly research.

New Glasgow themed genealogy discussion forum

I've been informed via Twitter about a new genealogy discussion forum being developed for the west of Scotland, called Glasgow Genes, which is available at http://wosgenealogy.boards.net.

The site is very embryonic, and is not yet live, but in time may build up to be a useful resource. If you have Glasgow connections, it might be worth keeping an eye on its development.

TNA podcast: Defeating the Zeppelins

A podcast I have overlooked from the National Archives in England (www.nationalarchives.gov.uk) is one entitled Defeating the Zeppelins, a talk by Ian Castle at just under 50 minutes in length.

For almost two years during the First World War, German airships roamed over the British countryside, bombing towns and villages without fear of a significant response from the aircraft assigned to defend the country. But all that changed in the late summer of 1916 when a new weapon was introduced, one that spelt the end of the Zeppelin menace.

It can be downloaded from, or listened at, http://media.nationalarchives.gov.uk/index.php/defeating-zeppelins/.

Moray, Scotland, Local Heritage Index, 1632-2014

Ancestry (www.ancestry.co.uk) has a new third party index on its website for a Scottish resource:

Web: Moray, Scotland, Local Heritage Index, 1632-2014
http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=70769
Original data: People Search. Local Heritage Services in Moray - Scotland. http://libindx.moray.gov.uk/mainmenu.asp: accessed 12 May 2016.

The website for Moray Council's heritage service describes its database holdings as follows:

Libindx is the Local Heritage Service's index to sources of information about people, places and subjects relating to Moray. All indexed references to specific individuals, properties and subjects are included under their own unique reference number. Sources indexed include local government archives from the 13th century to 1975, local newspapers, gravestone inscriptions, non-established church records to 1855, architectural plans, books, family histories etc.

Regularly updated, the people index contains over 200,000 names and acts as an aid for genealogists tracing their roots in Moray as well as researchers into well-known Moravians such as Ramsay MacDonald or the Wolf of Badenoch.

The places index, as well as listing the plans from major architectural collections including the distillery plans of Charles Chree Doig, provides details of photographs and sources of histories of the many historic buildings in Moray such as Elgin Cathedral and Sueno's Stone.

The many diverse subjects indexed include sport, education, archaeology and highway robbery. Many of the items listed are taken from the local newspapers which date back to 1747.

MyHeritage launches new Discoveries page

The MyHeritage website (www.myheritage.com) has revealed a new consolidated Discoveries page for finding matches in records and other users' trees.


We’ve unified all matches and organized them into two main pages: Matches by People and Matches by Source. Now you can look at all matches that were found for a particular individual in your family tree, or all matches found in a particular collection of historical records or matching family tree. Whatever you choose to use, the new pages combine Smart Matches (matches with trees) and Record Matches (matches with records) into the same unified and consistent interface. However, you can still decide to view only Smart Matches or only Record Matches and not both together.

For further details visit the MyHeritage blog at https://blog.myheritage.com/2017/02/introducing-the-new-discoveries-pages/.
