MEETING - 4 July 2018
NICK BARRATT – Family History in the 21st Century
Tickets are £5 for non-members please email email@example.com to order them.
Our July meeting is a talk by Nick Barratt, President of the Federation of Family History Societies. However, for this talk Nick will be drawing on his background in family history research plus being the original consultant and lead researcher when the TV series WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE was launched in 2004.
In the talk he explores the impact of the series on modern family history, along with the rise of the internet as the place to trace your roots. Using examples from the series, he takes the audience behind the scenes to highlight how research takes place, with an emphasis firmly on story-telling and the importance of thinking about the forgotten lives of our ancestors – and how they remain relevant today.
We look forward to seeing you at what promises to be a very entertaining and informative meeting.
