7th & 8th June 2019 - Birmingham, England

The demise of the Who Do You Think You Are? Live show has left a hole in the genealogy calendar of UK-based events with many attendees commenting on the loss of a ‘big’ annual gathering.

An international group of genealogists, led by Kirsty Gray and Sylvia Valentine (Show Directors), have been diligently working since the US-based RootsTech Conference, to get THE Genealogy Show on the road.

This two-day event will take place at the NEC (National Exhibition Centre) in Birmingham, in the same hall as in previous years. 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.

More information will be released on the website over the next month, though you can register your interest as an exhibitor, speaker or sponsor on the website right now - http://www.thegenealogyshow.uk.

DNA: A beginner's guide for family historians

Saturday 14th September 2019 - Canterbury

Venue
IHGS
Northgate
Canterbury
CT1 1BA

No matter which way we look DNA testing is mentioned more and more within the field of genealogy and DNA data can be a powerful addition to our research tool box. However, there are a variety of tests available from a number of testing companies and it can quickly become overwhelming trying to work out whether to test and which test to take.

This day course is run by Dr Karen Cummings, one of our Tutors, who is a professional genealogist with a background in the pharmaceutical industry.

During the day Karen will guide you through the minefield of DNA tests available, looking at what to consider before you test, which test is most suitable when, suitable candidates for each type of testing and what you can do with your results.

Subjects will include Y-DNA (paternal testing), mitochondria DNA or mtDNA (maternal testing), ethnicity data (those maps of "where you come from"), in addition to what is now the most popular type of DNA testing, autosomal DNA tests, such as those available from Ancestry. The day will include hands on sessions, giving you opportunities to become familiar with the data.

The course is equally suitable for those considering taking the first step and those who have already taken a test and want to know what to do with the results.

£55 or £50 AGRA members or £49 IHGS students

Report Writing - How to Manage a Research Task

Monday 23rd September 2019 - Canterbury

Venue
IHGS
Northgate
Canterbury

If you are going to advertise yourself as a professional researcher then your presentation to the client is the ‘window display’ of your business - a reflection on you. If you are seeking to gain membership of AGRA then you will need to submit a client report to be assessed by the AGRA Board of Assessors. Similarly, one of the requirements of the Diploma in Genealogy is to conduct research and to produce a client report, describing the results of your research. This module will cover the key components that comprise a client report and offer tips on how to manage research tasks.
