Website update and conference

The latest release of the Halsted Research website was loaded on Tuesday 3rd July.

Amongst other updates this one has looked at those people who have a first name of Halstead - which may well indicate that a parent, grandparent or even more distant relative had the surname. So far I have covered surnames starting with the letters A, B or C. More will follow in time. This has enabled a number of smaller trees to be linked to larger ones.

I am sure that many will have seen the announcement that the Halsted Trust is to organise another family history conference. I know we all said last time "never again" - but we must be gluttons for punishment - mind that could be said for many family historians.

Details of the conference "Exodus: Movement of the people" which looks at the migration of people can be found on its own website. The conference is over the weekend of the 6th to 8th September 2013.
