While, in these unprecedented times, we are not going to be able to meet as usual at York in June for our customary Family History Show at the racecourse, the good news is that we are still going to be able to safely enjoy access to many of the usual features of the show.
The Family History Show will be coming to you as an online event on the 20th of June featuring a wide range of virtual stalls from family history societies to archives and genealogical suppliers.
The Family History Show Online will, mirroring the format of the very successful live shows, feature an online lecture theatre, the popular ‘Ask the expert’ area – where you can put questions forward to our specialists – as well as a whole host of stalls where you can ask for advice as well as buy genealogical products.
To make this online experience as useful to family historians as attending the physical show would have been, you can “visit” a stall in the virtual exhibition hall. With over 85 present there will be a wide variety of societies and companies. Here there will be the opportunity to talk to some of the stallholders by text, audio or video from the comfort of your own home. With this facility you can ask them for advice regarding their family history society/business and also purchase from their online stall various downloadable products to help you with your research.
In the virtual lecture theatre there will also be the chance to watch webcasts of talks from the same lecturers who would have been at the physical event, had it taken place. These presentations will cover a wide variety of family history topics.
Tickets to attend the online Family History Show are available for just £5.50 each. All ticket holders will also receive a digital Goody Bag worth over £10 on the day.
