Once top secret MI5 WW1 files can now be downloaded from The National Archives’ website.

More than 150 top secret MI5 files from the First World War are now revealed on The National Archives’ website as part of the archives’ First World War 100 programme. With papers relating to organisations and individuals, you can find famous names among the files, from Edith Cavell, Mata Hari, Arthur Ransome and even the Boy Scout Association. And the files are extensive – the Mata Hari download being 87 full colour pages of correspondence and notes. At just £3.30 per digital download these files make intriguing reading to the espionage of the era, even if, like the vast majority of us, you don’t have a direct family history connection to those mentioned.

 

 

Campaign calls for you to explore your archive

From tomorrow, 16 November, until 22 November 2013, archives in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales are holding a range of talks and events, and online and in-house exhibitions to highlight their collections.

Local, university, business, specialist and national archives throughout the UK and Ireland are inviting the public to experience, understand and take pride in the wealth and variety of material held in archives as part of a brand new campaign, Explore Your Archive.

Explore Your Archive highlights the essential and inspiring role of archives and brings to life some of the individuals, tales and adventures waiting to be explored in archives throughout the UK and Ireland.

The campaign aims to encourage the public to discover the stories that are at the heart of their communities and their identities. It will inspire new visitors to visit archives to share the excitement and passion of finding unique treasures, historical records and artefacts.

Joanne Fitton, Special Collections Manager, Brotherton Library, University of Leeds said: ‘Archives are unlike a museum or gallery where the collections are presented – archives are there for individuals to explore the collections for themselves and find the information or stories which inspire them. The thrill of discovery is at the heart of this campaign.’

Exploreyourarchive.org, the public website for the campaign, includes features such as an archive locator with an interactive map, a live twitter feed promoting Explore Your Archive activities and a video gallery featuring the campaign’s ambassadors. Go take a look!

‘Cheddar Man’ descendants reunited

Cheddar Man descendants

Descendants of the ‘Cheddar Man’ found in Gough’s Cave, Cheddar Gorge, are reunited.

Living descendants of the UK’s ‘Cheddar Man’, who lived 9,000 years ago, have been reunited thanks to 192.com.

Considered Britain’s oldest complete skeleton, the stone-age remains were found in Cheddar Gorge, Somerset, and were excavated in 1903. Genetic fingerprinting later found that some descendants of the Cheddar Man still live in the same area of Britain.

Sharing the caveman’s DNA is Adrian Targett of Somerset and Craig Dent of Melbourne, Australia. Using 192.com’s search database Craig was able to contact Adrian and the pair met at the end of May.

‘I knew through my research that my links to the Bristol region dated back many hundreds of years on both my paternal and maternal lineages,’ said Craig. ‘However, I was surprised to learn through my DNA that my link with the region dates back thousands of years. When I first spoke with Adrian and other distant relatives in Stoke Gifford and Winterbourne, the heartland of my paternal link to the region, I was humbled by their kindness and warmth. 192.com’s services were invaluable in assisting me to bring these connections to life.’
