by admin in Uncategorised

The midweek blog feature sees a return to the UK and also a highlight of those speakers travelling ‘across the pond’ to be a part of and support THE Show.

THE Genealogy Show features a multitude of home grown talent and the arena talk programme showcases speakers with expertise in all the different fields of genealogy. From starting, writing or recording your research to DNA and from records, archives and free resources to military history and involving the younger generation in genealogy, there is literally something of interest for everyone.

Other notable highlights are Mike Sharpe who will be presenting Tracing your Birmingham Ancestors, Aiden Feerick with an Introduction to Irish Genealogy and Alison Spring with two different talks relating to tracing Scottish ancestors and the world of Scottish certificates.

Bestselling British International genealogical crime mystery author Nathan Dylan Goodwin will also be presenting two different arena talks as well as having an exhibition stand.

In the exhibition hall, exhibitors will include Family History Societies from England and Wales, plus organisations such as AGRA, FACHRS, Free UK Genealogy, The Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain and The Surname Society. There will also be unique UK research projects, products and services. You can view the full list of exhibitors by clicking here.

THE Genealogy Show has huge international support and followers and is very excited to be welcoming a host of acclaimed genealogists from around the world.

Arriving from various destinations in the USA, we are proud to host Blaine T. Bettinger, Lisa Louise Cooke and Judy G. Russell, all of whom will be presenting on both days of THE Show. Their arena talks are not to be missed. Tickets are in high demand as the opportunity to attend their presentations in the UK is not one that often arises.

Valerie Elkins, Mags Gaulden and Ruth Blair will also be travelling across the Atlantic from the USA and Canada and will present talks relating to topics such as mistakes new genealogists make and how to avoid them, organising and keeping track of everything, forensic genealogy and adoption and Canadian family history research.

Jill Ball will be winging her way in from Australia to provide the low down on everthing you need to know about genealogy blogs and resources to trace relatives ‘down under’.

Lianne Kruger will be making the journey from Canada to present Keeping Track of Every Note in Evernote and also Research and Share with Social Media.

If you are looking for relatives from British India, Valmay Young and Beverly Hallam will be presenting on both days with plenty of information to start or further your research.

For the full Arena Talk Programme, you can view Friday’s here and Saturday’s here.
