2018 Conference

Sadly, our 2018 Conference is over. Held on Saturday October 2018 at the National Railway Museum in York, this was the first conference organised by RQG as part of our mission to share latest developments in genealogy and family history. It was open to RQG members and non-members alike.

Abstracts of all the individual talks have been published in Volume 2 of the Journal of Genealogy and Family History. The range of topics covered was inspiring.
