What is it about family history that you love to learn?



Maybe you like the challenges of getting to grips with all the research methods, or maybe it is the opportunities for learning? 


  • Do you like the challenge to get to grips with the records and websites you need for your research?
  • Do you like delving into the ancestor clues hidden in your genes, exploring what DNA tests can reveal to you?
  • Or, perhaps, the family history learning odyssey appeals to you for the massive mixture of opportunities it provides to learn new things – about history generally, times gone by, where our families have come from and even who we are today?


At Family Tree Live there will be all sorts of ways in which you can learn more about your family history at our two-day family history event.

There’ll be lectures and hands-on workshops, giving you the chance to expand your knowledge – so getting new skills and new ideas to help you get a richer understanding of your own family’s history.

The Family Tree Live lecture and workshop programmes will give you the chance to learn from experts passionate about their topics, and will also give you the opportunity to try things out yourself (often the best way to learn things!) and to go home buzzing with ideas about where to take your family tree adventure next.

To get your tickets to Family Tree Live simply click here!
