The Future of Family History

The Windsor branch of the BerksFHS will briefly hold its annual meeting, followed by a fascinating talk:

Family history has changed enormously in the last 30 years.

The way we work has changed almost faster than we can keep up with.

This talk will explore what might happen in the future as far as records and their preservation, access to records, and recording and documenting family trees.

At the end of the talk, listener opinions will be welcomed.

This talk is free to members of Berkshire Family History Society and we request a donation of £3 from non-members. Pre-booking is required, because the meeting link will emailed in advance. Booking ends one day before event. 

To join in this branch meeting, you will need a computer device which has a microphone and speakers. Ideally, also a webcam. You also need to be able to access emails from this device. First time users will be asked to download a small piece of software to join the meeting.  The meeting link will be emailed to you in advance.
