Located downstairs, our specialist exhibtors will be grouped together in our new Migration Zone:

A number of workshops within the Society of Genealogists' Programme and The National Archives Theatre will focus on migration, such as 'Finding English Emigrants to Canada and their Descendants' by John D Reid (Saturday, 2pm, SoG Regional Studio) and 'The British Overseas - Records in the UK' by Else Churchill (Sunday, 11am, SoG Regional Studio.)

In addition to that, our Keynote Workshop* is entitled 'Using the Internet to Research Abroad'. John Hanson will will be looking at ways to research those ancestors who lived abroad and his talk will be followed by a Q&A session with a distinguished panel of experts. Put your questions to Sharon Tomlin, Roger Kershaw, Simon Fowler, Maggie Loughran, Micheal Leclerc and Else Churchill.

Within the zone, there will also be a number of displays with information to help.
