Immigration: The BBC tells us of a very ambitious project that will delight historians, genealogists, and everyday blokes alike. It's the "Moving Here" project, which is up on the web and traces over 200 years of migration to the U.K. through thousands up on thousands of digitized pictures, records, and personal diaries/notes. The best part is that you don't need to have an agenda going into the site as you can simply take advantage of the "popular search" feature and see what others have found interesting.
