New book complements iMuseum

A new guide exploring family and local history on the Isle of Man will be launched tomorrow (Saturday).

'Unlocking The Past' has been compiled by Matthew Richardson, Manx National Heritage’s curator of social history, and aims to do just that.

The book explains the many different historical records and resources available on the Isle of Man, including photographic collections, maps and military records, and how they can be used alongside sources in other parts of the world (listen to audio file below):

Matthew Richardson will present a short talk and be on-hand to sign copies of his book at the iMuseum, the new MNH digital records facility, at 3.30pm tomorrow (Saturday).
