The following announcement was written by the organizers of the 2022 Really Useful Family History Show:
The online Really Useful Family History Show is live online this weekend:
Friday 11th November: 6pm until 10pm GMT
Saturday 12th November: 10am until 6pm GMT
There are two Keynote presentations, four drop-in Expert Connect sessions, twelve specialist talks, thirty practical workshops and some sixty exhibitors.
The keynote presentations are Connecting your DNA matches and British Army Detective – piecing together the jigsaw.
The Expert Connect sessions provide drop-in opportunity for visitors to seek help and advice from the Family History Federation, AGRA, FamilySearch and RGQ. Times are on the website.
The twelve specialist talks cover a wide range of topics from workhouses to railways, from migration to the industrious revolution and more. These are available to ticket holders until 11.59pm on 19th November.
The thirty interactive practical workshops on Saturday explore everything from handwriting to manorial documents, heirlooms to oral history and many topics that occur in family history research. Booking is required – these are included in the show ticket so no extra payment is required.
The sixty exhibitors have booths in the Exhibition Hall where visitors can find expert local or specialist advice along with free downloads or special offers. Many family history societies are present with their particular experience of research in their locality. All exhibitors will be happy to help visitors with information about their services. The Exhibition Hall is open while the show is live online.
