We’re delighted to say we’re going to be at Family Tree Live at Alexandra Palace later this month – and we want to see you there!
We’ll be on stand 31, and will be making ourselves as obvious as possible. We’ve been working with family historians and genealogists for some time, including trying to make sure our free resources are widely known and used. We hope that our stand at Family Tree Live will spread the word still further.
As a result of support from the Friends of the National Railway Museum and our project partners (including significant funding from the University of Portsmouth), we’re able to field a strong team to help find your way around our project and its resources. We’ll be putting on workshops and we’re taking part in the children’s detective trail – so there’s something for everyone!
We’ve put together a short video, with a bit more about what you can find at the event:
Come along and find us at Family Tree Live – and find out how we can help you with your research.
All of this is one way that we’ve been working towards a new initiative that is trying to bring together academics, family historians, genealogists, local historians, archivists and more, to see how they can work more collaboratively on shared research areas and interests. Some initial discussion has been going on via Twitter, under #HistoriansCollaborate – and there’s more to come soon, so watch this space!
