The Future of Family History
with Nick Barratt

Thursday 9th September 2021 10am and repeated 
Wednesday 22nd September 2021 2pm

Nick will begin by looking at the impact of the television series Who Do You Think You Are? (WDYTYA) on the way we approach genealogy and then look at the themes that spin out of the television series - connectivity, data, education, relevance and wellbeing.

Nick was a key advisor when WDYTYA was first introduced and so has a wealth of information to impart.He is an author, broadcaster and historian best known for his work on BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are. He is an honorary associate professor of public history at the University of Nottingham, the Director of Learner and Discovery Services at the Open University, a teaching fellow at the University of Dundee and a fellow of the Royal Historical Society. His latest publication, The Restless Kings, explores the reigns of Henry II, Richard I and John. He is currently the President of the Family History Federation, sits on the Executive Committee of the Community Archives and Heritage Group and is part of the Midlands 4 Cities Doctoral Training Partnership Advisory Group.

The cost of each Tutorial is £10.
