    1. Learning the craft of genealogy online
    2. Kylie Veale
    3. Fellow genealogists, Have you ever used the Internet to learn about genealogy methods and resources? Taken a genealogy course online? Read some 'how to' articles? Then I would like to hear from you. I am an Australian Ph.D. student who is currently writing a book chapter for an academic Virtual Learning Environment publication - my chapter is about using the Internet for genealogical education. I would therefore love to hear from you, fellow genealogists, about any Internet-based content you've used for genealogy education. This includes online courses (free or fee), how-to's, articles/columns, newsgroups, BBS, chat, mailing lists, forums, or even personal web pages that publish learning material - anything online that helps you in learning the craft of genealogy. Your comments on the following is of utmost interest: What are your favourite learning outlets on the Internet? How often do you use them? Can or did you find what you needed online? What are your learning successes? What could be better? What do you look for in genealogical learning on the Internet? If you would like to participate, your comments are extremely welcome. Please send your comments to me directly at [email protected] before Saturday 1st May 2004. I thank you in advance for your participation in this academic research. Kylie Veale P.S. Names and email addresses will be protected and are therefore not included in the publication. Copies of the paper will be made available to interested participants on request, after the book has been published. ----------------------------------------------- Kylie J.

    1. [TRANSCRIPTS-AUS] New Docklands transcription completed
    2. Hello If you are researching ancestors from the Docklands area of London,particularly Waterman ancestors,you may find a visit to www.ParishRegister.com worthwhile. I've just completed the transcription of the baptisms registers of St Anne, Limehouse,1833 to 1854,comprising some 10,700 entries.Watermen & Lightermen are featured prominently,as do other docks trades. There are also more out-of-parish entries here than usual.Poplar,Ratcliff,Shadwell,Blackwall,Millwall and Rotherhithe feature prominently. About 40% of the birth dates pre-date civil registration too. This brings to six the number of transcriptions of parish registers from the area: St Peter's,London Docks 1878-1933 St Mary Newington,Southwark 1902-1922 St Paul ,Shadwell 1852-1881 St James,Ratcliff 1840-1913 St John ,Wapping 1813-1847 St Anne,Limehouse 1833-1854 None of these parishes were covered by the IGI, so you won't find them anywhere else outside of the LMA. Am now transcribing St Peter, Limehouse, 1866-1903 and St Luke,Millwall, 1864-1887. You can choose between using the online search facility or purchasing in fiche or CD format. Please see website for full details ! James Legon www.parishregister.com
