premiere UK genealogy event.
For the second year it's being held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, this year 7-9 April.
It's a couple of years since I attended and will be earning my admission by speaking on Finding English emigrants to Canada and their descendants at 16:15 on the first day. I see I'm speaking opposite Janet Few who I'd love to hear -- isn't that always the way.
I'm also booked to make a presentation the next day in the DNA presentation area, assuming it goes ahead. That will be a talk on Richard III much like that I gave to BIFHSGO last October.
In addition to a number of celebrity speakers, usually previous subjects of WDYTYA TV episodes, there are lots of familiar names on the agenda as workshop speakers: Peter Christian, Else Churchill, Beryl Evans, Simon Fowler, Julie Goucher, Kirsty Gray, John Hanson, Celia Heritage, Sharon Hintze, Daniel Horowitz, Alec Tritton.
On previous visits I've alway run into a few Canadians -- this year will be no exception. Join us if you'd like to give your UK research a boost.
