Online is where it’s at when it comes to genealogy events. The latest to be announced is The Genealogy Show which was last (and I think first) held at the UK National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham after WDYTYA Live folded.
To attend this year there’s no travel, no jet lag, no expensive hotel, no exceptional (or exceptionally mediocre) restaurant meals. Speakers don’t have travel expenses either which brings the cost way down. That’s reflected in the registration fee.
What’s on offer? Who’s speaking? I counted 62 live presentations, starting with Lisa Louise Cooke at 12:01 am BST on Friday 25 June through to Stephen Gill at 11:20 pm BST the next day. You’ll recognize many of the speakers, including some Canadians. The lineup is here.
In addition, there’s an unscheduled on-demand section and presentations will remain available to view for 30 days.

According to the website “Companies House Number – 11275801” is organizing the event. Search that and you’ll find the sole proprietor of The UK Genealogy Show Limited is (The) Kirsty Gray.
