Data CDs    

Matt Elton reviews this month's new data CDs for family historians...

86th Regiment of Foot

Genuinely interesting as well as useful, this disc organises Richard Cannon's Victorian biography of the Royal County Down Regiment into easily searchable five-yearly intervals, covering their formation, marches and engagements.

S&N, £13.95, www.genealogysupplies.com

Gore's Liverpool Directory 1805

What could otherwise be a slightly imposing directory of professions and addresses is made manageable on this data disc with bookmarks, headings and a search facility. An appendx lists mayors, council members and MPs from 1568 onwards.

S&N, £14.95, www.genealogysupplies.com

Air Force List - October 1933

If you're eager to learn more about your RAF ancestors in the run-up to the Second World War, this list may offer clues. Names of servicemen from marshals to reserves, are listed by unit and branch. Details of retirements and deaths are also included.
