Genealogy Events in London

If you're planning a family history visit to London in 2010 consider taking in one of the many lectures given throughout the year.

The Society of Genealogists have just announced their lecture program for 2010, including one hour, half-day and day-long events, and visits. You can book and pay online. See the list at www.sog.org.uk/events/calendar.shtml

TNA at Kew don't give as much notice, just a month ahead, but their one-hour lectures are free. See the most recent list at www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/visit/events.htm

At the end of February the exhibition site at Olympia hosts "Who Do You Think You Are, Live" which bills itself as The National History Show. Sunday the 28th, often a quieter day at the show, features three special lectures. More at www.whodoyouthinkyouarelive.co.uk/

Don't forget the events put on locally. For example, the East of London Family History Society lists their events at www.eolfhs.org.uk/events

If your visit takes you outside London you might also want to check country FHS offerings, perhaps best done through GENUKI, either using GENEVA (an online calendar of GENealogical EVents and Activities) at http://geneva.weald.org.uk/, or by going directly to the local society linked through the GENUKI county page, www.genuki.org.uk/
