I’ve been looking forward to the BIFHSGO conference talks on 25 September. Now I find the Register of Qualified Genealogists are streaming a free Conference: Genealogy and Social History: Know your Ancestors on the same day. Here’s the programme (pdf).

Fortunately, the time difference works in our favour. The opening presentation for RQG, What genealogists and social historians can learn from each other, by Caroline Gurney starts at 5 am ET. Chris Paton’s talk Church and State: Ireland’s Vital Records starts at noon ET. By that time the final RQG presentation, one I’d particularly like to attend, Lying Bastards: the impact of illegitimacy on family history research, by Dave Annal, will be about halfway through.
