Meet the Speakers

Introducing our spectacular speaker line-up for THE Genealogy Show 2021! Take a look at our speaker schedule below, where you’ll see we have non-stop talks for 48hrs on all of your favourite genealogy and family history subjects.

Worried you might miss a talk going live? We’ve got you covered! Once a video has gone live on the Main Stage, it will also be deposited into the On-Demand section where you can watch the talk at a time that best suits you. With THE Genealogy Show 2021 being extended to a massive 30-day event, this means you’ll be able to keep going back and watch all the talks that take your fancy.
