ARCHIVED: British and Irish Military Records 28 June 2016

We are particularly fortunate to have Audrey Collins from The National Archives (UK) participating each Tuesday evening on her own time. So Ol' Myrt here wrote via the TNA website under the category "compliments":
"Please see that this gets to your employee Audrey Collins' permanent file.

For the past six weeks she has participated in our DearMYRTLE British and Irish Military Records hangouts, scheduled immediately after her work each Tuesday.

Her contribution has been invaluable - providing insights and demonstrating the navigation of the TNA and other websites to solve research challenges. Our audience is mainly from the US, but Scotland, Wales and Australia are also represented.
We also wish to commend her participation in US national conferences, and in TNA podcast series. We look forward to the summer 2016 webinar presentations including her work and that of her colleagues. Very truly yours..."
It's also good to hear when you've done something right, eh?

As our promised our marvelous course coordinator Claire V. Brisson-Banks has made the final update to our Google Sheet. You'll find it publicly shared here:
