  • The British Newspaper Archive, a partnership between D.C. Thomson Family History (owner of the findmypast websites) and the British Library, has a new, free iPhone app called Here & Then. It shows you newspaper articles about what happened on this day in history,  amusing news blurbs from history, and historical news articles related to today's headlines. Download the app from the iTunes store.

  • Findmypast has announced an initiative to release 100 databases in 100 days. The databases will come from around the world and so far include the Birmingham Pals WWI battalion, Glasgow Pals, Liverpool Pals and more. Learn more here. In related news, subscribers to the British site Findmypast.co.uk are up in arms about site updates many say make the site harder to navigate and search. The new site was rolled out to international customers over a year ago, but only recently introduced to UK customers, according to a Q&A on the problems

  • Professional genealogist and house historian Marian Pierre-Louis has started a new podcast called The Genealogy Professional. It provides guidance on running a genealogy business for professional genealogists and amateur researchers considering going pro. Shows are broadcast weekly, released every Monday through the Genealogy Professional website as well as iTunes and Stitcher.
  • British genealogy site Origins.net has updated its free Devon Wills Project index to include more than 300,000 Devon wills from 1164 to 1992. Not all of the original wills referenced survived WWII bombings; the index tells you whether an original, copy, transcription or abstract of the will survives and how to access it. Search here.
