The latest news and information from the Achievements team.

  1. AGRA conference last weekend

    Our Principal Dr Richard Baker attended the AGRA (Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives) conference this weekend at St John’s College, Cambridge, entitled “Demolishing Brick Walls”.  A thoroughly enjoyable event, covering diverse aspects of genealogy, his favourite talk was by John Titford, which was called “Barking up the wrong tree”. It exposed the dangers of researching the wrong family tree, a trap that many family historians can fall into.

    Other highlights included Rebecca Probert’s “The rise and fall of the crime of Bigamy” and Debbie Kennett’s “DNA demystified”.  We all look forward to the next AGRA conference.

  2. Getting ready for WDYTYA? Live this week

    There is a flurry of activity here at our headquarters in Canterbury as we get ready to attend this year’s Who Do You Think You Are? Live event at the NEC in Birmingham, running from Thursday 7th-Saturday 9th of April.  This is the largest genealogy conference in the country, and is not to be missed by any family historians.

    We will be situated at Stand 71, so please do come and say hello to us there.  Further information on tickets, travel, workshops and exhibitors can be found here.
