Yes, I've watched a few already, including a great talk from Irene O'Brien, in her wonderful Scottish brogue, about Glasgow records. Given my Nan was born there and her parents and siblings lived there for several decades (1890 - 1920) I found it very instructive. I enjoyed Eamon Healy's talk as well, on using Ancestry DNA. I daresay I'll end up watching all of them o'er the next 3 months (the timeline for viewing).

Claire Santry, as per usual, has a good blog post about it, including updates on some teething problems and their fixes.

Yes, I actually rang them yesterday morning to ask about the delay, and then sent an email pointing out the wrong links!

Planning to do a review on my blog when I've watched a few more after the weekend.

I keep getting this email from "brian@slp.ie" - note there is no link in the message or any other details. I'm assuming this is not legit?

I'm still getting those as well. *sigh*
They are legit, despite the terrible English.

Here's my review:

Yes, have lost count of the times I've received that mail. Have blocked the sender. Bordering on SPAM.

I emailed them earlier to ask them to stop & they said they had switched off whatever was causing, but I know others have received it since lunch time.
