"THE Genealogy Show" to Debut in June 2019 in Birmingham

I received this information from Kirsty Gray last night:

The demise of the Who Do You Think You Are? Live show has left a hole in the genealogy
calendar of UK-based events with many attendees commenting on the loss of a ‘big’ annual gathering.

Headed by Kirsty Gray and Sylvia Valentine (Show Directors), an international group of genealogists has been diligently working since the US-based RootsTech 2018 Conference, to get THE Genealogy Show on the road. The Board includes Jill Ball aka GeniAus (Australia), Liv Birgit Christensen (Norway), Ruth Blair (Canada), Mags Gaulden (Canada), Pat Richley-Erickson aka DearMYRTLE (US), John Boeren (Netherlands) and DM Walsh (UK).

This two-day event will take place at the NEC (National Exhibition Centre) in Birmingham on June 7th and 8th 2019, in the same hall as WDYTYA? Live was held in previous years. The Board members are dedicated to providing outstanding educational opportunities through talks and stands, as well as creating an environment where family historians from beginner to expert can network together. Even at this early planning stage, many international genealogists are making travel plans to attend the event.

More information will be released on the website over the next month, though you can register your interest as an exhibitor, speaker or sponsor on the website right now -
