Today, I was supposed to be arriving at the Roseview Alexandra Place Hotel in London, ahead of the Family Tree Live 2020 conference. I was scheduled to deliver two talks and one workshop on the weekend of April 17th and 18th.
Well, of course we all know how that trip and conference has turned out!
Undaunted, the Family Tree magazine publisher in partnership with the Family History Federation have made some different arrangements to at least partly satisfy those that wanted to attend the conference in person. As they say in their latest newsletter:
The Family Tree virtually Live event will be held on 17 and 18 April right here on the FT website, bringing you a range of video tutorials and special offers. We're not letting the current situation stop us, and whilst we're unable to meet up at Alexandra Palace for Family Tree Live 2020, we're still bringing elements of the show to you here on the website.
I recorded my two talks and they will now be put online with many others for the general public to view under the following rules:
The videos will be freely available to watch until 24 April, after which they will only be available to Family Tree magazine subscribers.
If you do not subscribe to Family Tree you can now do so only £3 (for UK residents), usually £15.75. The overseas digital subscription is £16.99 (under $30 Canadian or half price). A subscription will give you access to the full, growing library of videos, as well as, of course, the great magazine. (I have an article in the current May issue.)
Come and see what it is all about.
