Visit our new Migration Zone

If you have ancestors who have imigrated or emigrated and are giving you the run-around, we'll help you look at best ways to trace them.

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

  • Anglo-German Family History Society
  • Anglo-Italian Family History Society
  • BYU Center for Family History and Genealogy
  • Caribbean Family History Group
  • Families in British India Society
  • Histoires de Familles Stories
  • Kresy-Siberia Virtual Museum

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.
