We run an extensive program of lectures, workshops, tours and group meetings which are open to everyone. We also hold member-only webinars and members receive a discount on our events.
A new program is released every three months. You can view the current events below.

Due to restrictions on events as part of the COVID19 response, all of our events are currently being delivered online using Gotowebinar, Gotomeeting or Zoom (depending on the nature of the event). We are planning on the assumption that restrictions on live events may well be in place for the rest of 2020 and we are committed to continuing to provide you with a great range of genealogy events.
When you register for an event, the confirmation email will contain information about how to join the event online. In many cases, this will require you to complete a further step of registering with Gotowebinar. If you have not used Gotowebinar before, you can find information about it on our website here.
With the exception of some DNA events where there may be privacy issues, all of our webinars are recorded, so even if you cannot attend at the scheduled time you can still book and receive the recording provided you remember to complete the second registration step with Gotowebinar. If a webinar is booked out, you can contact the office and purchase a link to the recording a couple of days after the event.
Our subscription to Gotowebinar has a limit of 100 people attending a webinar live. This means that it is the first 100 people to log in for the webinar who get to attend it live. Since the shutdown in response to COVID 19, we have experienced an increased interest in our webinars and that limit of 100 live attendees may be reached on some occasions. If you do not manage to get into a webinar on the day, please be assured that you will still receive the recording link to watch later.
Because of these changes in the delivery of our events, we have decided to open up our webinar program to non-members as well as members. However, non-members will pay a bit more and season tickets remain available only to members. We will also be providing an occasional free webinar for members only.
Registration types: The member category is used by members of the Society. Members must be logged in to make a booking. The complimentary category used by volunteers or new members if they receive an offer of a free event, and by presenters of the sessions. Everyone else should book using the non-member category.
