Regional Theatre Workshops at WDYTYA Live 2009

The following announcement is from the publicity officer of the Federation of Family History Societies, and will be of interest to any family history societies hoping to attend next year's Who Do You Think You Are? Live event (February 2009).

I am pleased to announce that a New Feature of Who Do You Think You Are LIVE 2009 will be The Society of Genealogists Regional Theatre Workshop in association with the FFHS.

The workshop will take the form of a series of lectures, answering the question “My Ancestor came from XXX - where’s the best place to get help?” Essentially the information being provided should include details regarding local Family History resources, County Record Offices, usefulwebsites etc. and of course most importantly Member Societies of the FFHS within the area.

This is an excellent opportunity for speakers to promote their region and ‘spotlight’ their local societies.

Whilst exhibiting Societies will be given priority, it is anticipated that some speakers will come from non-exhibiting groups. Where a society is unable to be present at the show, enquiries as a result of the lecture can be directed to the FFHS stand where the assistance of the speaker would beappreciated if possible.

Sessions are limited so if your region has an interest in participating in this excellent feature, it is advisable to make contact with us as soon as possible.
