NOTE from DearMYRTLE: YUP! Mr. Myrt and I are going to England, and are honored to be working with this dedicated team on THE Genealogy Show. Won’t you join us along with Jill Ball (Australia), Liv Birgit Christensen (Norway), Ruth Blair (Canada), Mags Gaulden (Canada), John Boeren (Netherlands) and DM Walsh (UK)? “The NEK” is the National Exhibition Centre, in Birmingham, England.


The demise of the Who 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, lead 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 in the same hall as in previous years and the Board 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 –
