Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are currently restructuring this event and website as a virtual event. Stay tuned, we'll have more information for you within a few days!

COVID-19 Update

In the wake of Covid-19 difficulties in hosting a live event, we are currently restructuring FHDU 2021 for a virtual event.

Sadly, the ongoing COVID-19 saga has caught up with FHDU 2021. We have reluctantly decided to change our in-person event into a fully virtual online event instead. We were all looking forward to a real, live, in-person event. Unfortunately, that is not to be.

But this gives us the opportunity to significantly re-format FHDU 2021. We are looking at this as a positive opportunity. We can now bring a significantly more valuable event to people around the globe.

The future of family history
Dr Nick Barratt

Dr Nick Barratt dusts down his crystal ball and casts his eye to the near future, using current trends that are shaping the way we research and write genealogy to predict some of the changes we might reasonably expect to take place. This talk will also look at some of the post-pandemic opportunities that are emerging in the UK where we might collaborate with other groups to help support and rebuild communities that have been disrupted – genealogy as a force for global good.
