Then there were two: The Genealogy Show

No sooner had the notice about the Family Tree Live conference, 26-27 April 2019, come in yesterday when a notice arrived from Kirsty Gray about another UK conference. Now instead of the one Who Do You Think You Are? live conference there are two!

The Genealogy Show, being held in Birmingham, 7-8 June 2019, is led by Kirsty and Sylvia Valentine (Show Directors).
Board members include an international consortium, many widely known through social media: Jill Ball (Australia), Ruth Blair (Canada), John Boeren (Netherlands), Liv Birgit Christensen (Norway), Mags Gaulden (Canada), Pat Richley-Erickson (US, aka Dear Myrtle) and David Walsh (UK).
According to the notice received: The Board members are dedicated to providing outstanding educational opportunities through talks and stands, as well as creating an environment where family historians from beginner to expert can network together. Even at this early planning stage, many international genealogists are making travel plans to attend the event.

MOST interesting John. I had no idea this conference was going on ...... And I had to look up Sylvia Valentine, never having heard of her before. She's an AGRA member.

Why have we not heard about this until just a month before, do you think .....? Any guesses from anyone else? Cheers, BT
