like these two libraries were started as separate private collections by Lord Conway and Sir Robert Witt. The Conway Library came to the Institute in 1932, whilst the Witt Library was transferred to the Institute after the death of Sir Robert in 1952.

Courtauld Institute of Art : Photographic Collections & Services

The Conway and Witt are teaching and research collections and, unlike the Book Library of the Institute, are open to the public as well as to students and staff. The material is directly accessible to the user. Both libraries have been continually increased and expanded since becoming part of the institute, including coverage of their respective areas up to the present day. They are building up computer databases to index some of their material.

October Is Family History Month: How Will You Celebrate? "'The concept of designating October as 'Family History Month' began several years ago. It originated with the Monmouth County Genealogical Society, whose aspiration was that during this month, societies would do something special to draw attention to and promote family history. Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia all passed 'proclamations' in the last few years declaring October as Family History Month. At the last NGS board meeting, the NGS board officially endorsed the concept and will use the NGS Newsmagazine to promote the idea.'"

Metropolitan Police Service - Fraud Alert

Metropolitan Police Service - Fraud Alert

E-mails are created purporting to come from bank security departments were being circulated asking for username and password details in connection with Internet banking. The email invited account holders to click on a URL (Uniform Resource Locator), which generates a web page. Unsuspecting account holders account holders completed their user name and password on the web page. Unknowingly the account holder had linked into a web server run by a criminal enterprise.

Once the user name and password have been obtained the criminal logs into the on line banking system of that account and transfers money from that account into another account from which he will be able to obtain the funds.

In order to facilitate the transfers a number of people are recruited who have accounts at the same bank as the target account. The recruitment involves advertisements on Internet forums and unsolicited emails offering jobs as ‘ money processors'. Respondents to the advertisements are in receipt of 7% commission of the monies that they handle.

Once the stolen funds were received into the money processors bank account, they were given instructions to withdraw the money in cash and then to use money transfer agents and send the money to criminal organisers.

an expansion of the Clone Wars cartoon,

Star Wars: Clone Wars is an animated Star Wars television series that chronicles the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic under Chancellor Palpatine and the Confederacy of Independent Systems (CIS) under Count Dooku.

Chronologically, the series takes place between the two movies, between 22 BBY and 19 BBY. That is, during the 3-year time period in which the Clone Wars occurred. The original television series was produced by Cartoon Network Studios, aired from 2003 to 2005, and ran for 25 chapters. The 3D version is expected to be produced by Lucasfilm Animation and debut in 2007.

BBC Arabic TV


"The World Service said broadcasts in Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Kazakh, Polish, Slovak, Slovene and Thai languages would end by March 2006. "

It is part of a �30m restructuring of the World Service and is being funded by the closure of 10 foreign language services - with the loss of 218 jobs.

The NUJ and Bectu unions have condemned news of the closures and job losses as a "bitter" and "devastating" blow.

The World Service provides news in English and 42 other languages and is funded by a Foreign Office grant.

The BBC World Service is to launch an Arabic television news channel in 2007, the corporation has confirmed.
The channel will initially broadcast 12 hours a day and will be the BBC's first publicly funded global TV service.

Global Gene Project to Trace Humanity's Migrations

Global Gene Project to Trace Humanity's Migrations
and the National Geographic Online site is working again

Lesson Plans - Genographic: Permanent Markers

National Geographic Channel: Explorer: Explorer: Search for Adam

Genographic is not really a genetics project. It is using genetics as a tool to study history and anthropology. I’m interested in the impact of the Inca empire on the genetic patterns in upper Amazonia, in Central Asia I want to look at the impact of Alexander the Great,” says Wells as he rattles of a hit list of historical mysteries that he hopes to solve.

Search for Adam

On TV just now

Haplogroup B is one of the oldest Y-chromosome lineages in humans. Haplogroup B is found exclusively in Africa. This lineage was the first to disperse around Africa. There is current archaeological evidence supporting a major population expansion in Africa

Y-Chromosome Biallelic Haplogroups

Biallelic SNP markers are single base-pair mutations (polymorphisms) that occur at different Y-chromosome locations about once every 7000 years. SNP=Single Nucleotide Polymorphism. There are 153 known haplogroups. Haplotypes defined by the 25 STR markers are subgroups under the haplogroups

Haplogroups I, I1, and I1a are nearly completely restricted to northwestern Europe. These would most likely have been common within Viking populations. One lineage of this group extends down into central Europe.

National Geographic Channel: Explorer: Explorer: Search for Adam: "Analyzing DNA from the cheek cells of a group of Mongolians enabled geneticist Spencer Wells, an Explorer-In-Residence at the National Geographic Society, to figure out whether they were indeed descendants of the notorious warrior who lived 800 years ago and thousands of miles away. Such exotic historical enigmas are daily fodder for Wells who is in the midst of the Genographic Project (GP)�a massive undertaking to sample human DNA from around the world to illuminate human genetic and migratory history.

There is a history book in your DNA [that reveals] how people are related to each other all over the planet and how we have moved around,� says Wells.
The last 10,000 years are of particular interest to Wells who, since childhood, wanted to be an historian. �I was fascinated by Egypt and Greece and Rome and all of these great empires and I�m very interested in the impact of these empires on the patterns of genetic variation�for example, can we see traces of the Phoenicians in North Africa?� says Wells.

His latest adventures have led him to discover that Thomas Jefferson�s ethnic background is not quite as one would expect. He has hunted down possible descendents of Solomon, the third king of Israel. And, he has entered a world where science and religion converge�the search for what he calls the �scientific Adam,� the man who gave rise to all men today and the �trunk� of the human family tree. Wells has used DNA to trace this common ancestor back to Africa and perhaps to the very plains where he may have hunted. He has even identified a living tribe with an ancient lineage that offers a window into the life of �scientific " - 1851 England Census

Norwegian - American Dictionary

Norwegian - American Dictionary:

"This list contains Norwegian words with their English translations.
The words included here are those that you are likely to find in genealogical sources.
If the word you are looking for is not on this list,
please consult a Norwegian - English dictionary. (See 'Additional Resources' section below.)

Norwegian is a Germanic language like Swedish, Danish, and Icelandic.
There are two official dialects in Norway.
Prior to 1915 most Norwegian records are in a language closer to written
danish than modern Norwegian.
You may also want to refer to the Danish Genealogical Word List (Series LANG -DAN, 1).
Records published after 1915, such as family and local histories, are in modern Norwegian.
Most differences between modern and old Norwegian are simply a matter of spelling.
Carefully study the section below on spelling This will help you find words on this list."
