Join THE Genealogy Show Facebook Group

One of the highlights of attending genealogy events is meeting up with genimates, our friends from the world of genealogy.

The Board of THE Genealogy Show wants to give those attending the event a chance to know fellow attendees and presenters prior to the event. THE Show expects an influx of visitors from outside of the Birmingham area, even from far-flung places like Australia. Visitors would welcome the opportunity to meet some people virtually before arriving in Birmingham

We have created a dedicated Facebook Group: THE Genealogy Show – Birmingham UK 2019 for those interested in THE Show, a place to ask your silly or sensible questions, find people with similar interests and organise meetups with new friends. Some people already want to know where they can find chocolate near the NEC! The Belgians and Norwegians have indicated that they will be bringing some along.

Board Members Pat-Richley Erickson (DearMYRTLE) from the US and Jill Ball (GeniAus) from Australia are helping Show Director, Kirsty Gray, with administration of the Group.

Hop on over to sign up and say “Hello” to the folk who have already joined.

Valerie and Myrt’s Excellent Genealogical Adventures

“Colorado Springs, CO, Oct 19, 2018 — In anticipation of  THE Genealogy Show in Birmingham, England, US-based professional researcher and presenter Valerie Elkins joins blogger and webinar host Pat Richley-Erickson, “Myrt” of, to announce a new partnership.

“Why not make this trip to the UK, a most excellent genealogy adventure? Every genealogist hopes to travel to ancestral homelands. Throw in a genealogy conference and that’s a family historian’s dream come true,” says Valerie.

Myrt suggests sharing travel adventures may assist others also taking their first trip to the UK. “It’s about sharing the process of getting passports, deciding what to pack, figuring out where to stay, dealing with foreign currency and such. Valerie and Myrt’s Excellent Genealogy Adventures will chronicle networking with colleagues gathering from throughout the world, sharing the latest in DNA research and ideas for improving family history research skills.”

THE Genealogy show will be held at the NEC (The National Exhibit Centre) in Birmingham, England, 7-8 June 2019. Valerie will be presenting two Arena Talks. Myrt is a conference board member and will be taping AmbushCAM interviews.

Valerie and Myrt are scheduling visits to ancestral homelands before and after the conference, including stops in elsewhere in England, Scotland, Ireland and Norway. “We want to scope out the places where our ancestors once lived – get the lay of the land, that sort of thing. Thanks to modern technology, we’ve got top quality recording equipment in our hands and plan to do a lot of short-subject YouTube videos,” says Valerie.”
