News on "Exodus: Movement of the People" Conference


The following is a press release from The Halstead Trust

Dr Janina Ramirez to be After Dinner Speaker at Exodus: Movement of the People
The Halsted Trust is delighted to announce Ancestry.co.uk as the Platinum sponsor for our forthcoming International Family History conference, Exodus: Movement of the People at Hinckley, Leicestershire on Saturday 7th September 2013, organised by the Halsted Trust. We are also delighted to announce that we have engaged Dr. Janina Ramirez as our after dinner speaker.
Alec Tritton chairman of the Halsted Trust said "Ancestry.co.uk coming on board as the Platinum sponsor has enabled us to turn what we believe was already a great conference programme into a truly memorable one. We are also absolutely delighted to be able to invite such a well- known historian to bring her knowledge and expertise to our conference"
Karen Richardson Senior Manager of Community Marketing at Ancestry.co.uk said
“Migration and travel is one of the most fascinating areas of family history research, but also one of the most challenging. Whether your ancestors moved to a different town for work or crossed oceans in pursuit of a new life, their journeys can throw up a whole host of questions and complications when tracing your family tree. With this in mind, we’re excited to be supporting the The Exodus: Movement of the People conference and learning more from Dr. Janina Ramirez and the other speakers about many of these travels and how family historians can unlock the secrets of the journeys in their family’s past.” Dr Ramirez is a presenter, lecturer and researcher.
