Dear Family Historian,

Happy New Year from everyone at S&N! We hope you enjoyed your holidays.

In this issue, we start with a look at what will be coming online throughout 2015:
Parish Records, detailed County and Tithe Maps, millions of new Medals Records, more Grave Memorials from the Volunteer Headstone Project, records of Railway Workers from Pensions to Staff Movements, Jewish records, detailed Street Maps, Passenger Lists, Emigration Records and more War Memorials are all going online at TheGenealogist this year.

This month we've released more War Memorials, Parish Records and we have now added the 1911 census for all Starter and Gold Subscribers! You can make the most of this with £30 cash back on our Annual Gold Subscription, making it just £48.95 for the first year!

There's no better way to start the new year than with some special offers - you can claim £50 cashback on a Diamond Subscription to TheGenealogist, and save £££s in our New Year Sale over at S&N Genealogy Supplies. We also take a look at 2014 in review.

Ancestors that fell foul of the law are always fascinating subjects for family history research. Our article this month is a Victorian murder story of a notorious Madam who escaped the hangman's noose.

We wish you all the best for the year ahead!

Best Regards,

The S&N Team

S&N Genealogy Supplies: 2014 in Review

GeneAwards 20142014 saw the release of two major software releases. In November, RootsMagic released version 7 of its award winning software and this month it has been awarded "Best Genealogy Product of 2014" in the GeneAwards 2014.

Family Historian also announced their latest offering with Family Historian 6 being released in December.

Family Tree Maker opted not to release a new annual version this year, however they have been hard at work releasing patch updates to the 2014 version.

With the rise of digital media and cloud based storage becoming evermore present in today’s society, it came as a surprise to find that binders and sleeves are becoming more and more popular. This must be down to increasing awareness that incorrectly storing original documents can seriously damage them. Great care must be taken to avoid damaging the very precious, sometimes unique, documents. We have a vast range of archival materials available to genealogists to enable longevity of your precious items, so why not make it your new years resolution to organise and store that shoe box of old photos or all those BMD certificates you have ordered over the years?

Family History Binders are great for present your family historyPremium Leather A4 Burgundy Family History Binder

Although taking care of original documents should be everyone's top priority, you should also consider creating digital copies so that they can be shared with other family members, included with family trees on your computer, or even as backups in case of a disaster. One of our most popular items is the Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner, which can scan photos in albums, certificates and other precious documents through protective sleeves and even through photo frames. Larger documents can be scanned in multiple passes and merged together using the free stitching software that comes with the scanner.

2014 also saw the introduction of our Window Springback Binder, which allows for a custom front cover page to show through the window of the binder. The Springback Binders allow easy binding of pages to enable you to publish your family history at home, and should you need to update at a later stage, the pages can easily be removed and rebound.

TheGenealogist Tips

Do you want to make the most out of your subscription?

Our Master Search makes all our records easily accessible at the click of a button. Use one simple form to search across our millions of records, including Parish Records, Wills, Newspapers, Census, Non-Conformist Registers, and more.

You can narrow down your results quickly using the keyword box. A search for John Smith would return too many results, however entering the keyword 'Butcher' would return only those who were Butchers.
