Else Churchill, Genealogist at SoG, said:
‘Genealogy education and learning is at the heart of the Society’s foundation and hence we are delighted to be sponsoring a lecture theatre at Family Tree Live. Additionally, on the SoG stand you can meet our members and experts who are on hand to offer help and advice with your research and show how the Society’s library and remarkable research collections can take your family history further.’
Family Tree Live is set to become the UK’s most popular family history event. The major exhibition will feature lectures, workshops, displays and stands and will be suitable for all levels of family history experience.

‘It’s fantastic to be working with the Society of Genealogists, and their support fits perfectly with the strong learning aspect of Family Tree Live. We’re excited with the range of lectures, workshops and hands-on activities to be offered over the two days, and delighted to welcome SoG as an associate sponsor, an exhibitor and the sponsor of the Society of Genealogists Lecture Theatre.’
