The following announcement was written by TheGenealogist:
The York Fair, sponsored by TheGenealogist, was held last week at the York Racecourse. It was a great success with thousands of avid family historians visiting the show and benefitting from the free genealogy talks.
It also saw the launch of a major new Yorkshire collection of records on TheGenealogist. These include Civil War Records, Marriage Licences, Domesday Records, Visitations, Directories, Poll Books and Regimental Records
