  1. Discovery of Archbishop’s Tomb at Lambeth.

    Many of use struggle to find the burial place of all our ancestors but you would expect that this would not be true for those in positions of power and influence. The front page of the Sunday Telegraph has a story on the accidental discovery of tombs belonging to five former archbishops of Canterbury by builders carrying out refurbishment work near Lambeth Palace.

    A hidden chamber at St Mary-at-Lambeth church contained 30 lead coffins piled on top of each other, with an archbishop’s mitre resting on one of them. Closer inspection revealed metal plates bearing the names of five former archbishops of Canterbury, dating back to the early 17th Century.

  2. WDYTYA? Live at the NEC 2017

    We had great time at Who Do You Think You are? Live catching up with students and tutors on the IHGS Correspondence Course in Genealogy and the latest genealogical news. Advances in DNA testing dominated the show but it was nice to see so many Family History Societies attending.

    Our sister company, IHGS The School of Family History launched their brand new course, Awaken Your Ancestors. For more details go to their website.
