Normally each year Brita and some members of FACHRS would be travelling all over the UK taking the Roadshow to live Family History Fairs and Shows. At each venue FACHRS would have a table to exhibit copies of FACHRS newsletters, journals, books and CD’s together with information literature about the society. We get the opportunity to chat to people explaining what FACHRS is all about and what we have achieved with our research projects.
Unfortunately due to the current situation with Covid-19 physical fairs and shows have been cancelled, but they have been replaced with virtual shows. At these shows FACHRS has a virtual stall/booth where we often have a video explaining what FACHRS is about and a display of our products. You have an opportunity to chat to Brita or an existing FACHRS member to answer any questions you may have and if you are interested you can then join the Society.
To visit a virtual show go to their website where you can see who is exhibiting at the show and what talks are available to watch, buy a ticket (some are free or are usually cheaper if you buy in advance) and then log in to the show on the day.

If you missed RootsTech Connect in February you can still watch keynote sessions and educational classes. Go to www.familysearch.org/rootstech/rtc2021/home
