Family History Week #FHWeek 2018

My-Family-History-Week-logo-300x226Family Tree Magazine (UK) which has been bring to genealogists everywhere monthly delights for over thirty years hosted their first ever Family History Week #FHWeek from 16-22nd April 2018.

The Guild of One-Name Studies supported the event by opening up all their webinars to the public for the week.

Family Tree Magazine have a successful Facebook presence: their page and a group called Family Tree Academy group where there was daily discussions in the form of questions and documents.

I didn’t get chance to look at the questions with any real depth, so thought that I would note the questions and over the course of the next week would write my responses to those questions – so stay tuned!

Those discussion questions:

  • True or False, how reliable have you found your family history stories?
  • What do you know about your surname?
  • How do you look after your family’s old documents & photos?
  • Do you put your family history online?
  • Do you have a DNA dilemma?
  • What about you – leaving a trail for your descendants
  • What ideas do you think will get younger people into family history?

Thanks to Family Tree Magazine (UK) for a great #FHWeek and for those questions.
