FindmyPast to sponsor migration conference

News from the Halsted Trust:

Findmypast.co.uk becomes headline sponsor for major family history conference

The Halsted Trust is delighted to announce that findmypast.co.uk have agreed to sponsor their forthcoming conference on migration, to, from and within the British Isles

"Exodus: Movement of the People" will take place from the 6th to 8th September 2013 at the Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire. This major residential conference will give the genealogy community an opportunity to increase their knowledge on migration and network with other family historians. Full details of the programme will be announced in September.

Alec Tritton, Chairman of the Halsted Trust says "We are delighted to once more bring a residential conference to the genealogy world. After the unparalleled success of our 2009 conference "Open the Door and Here are the People", the last International Conference for family historians, having findmypast.co.uk yet again as a major sponsor will help us deliver an outstanding conference at a reasonable cost to the general public with all the features delegates have come to expect from a residential conference.

Debra Chatfield of findmypast.co.uk says "We are happy to take the opportunity to associate our brand once again with the Halsted Trust. The trustees have a proven track record in organising residential conferences and we are looking forward to a conference on migration. Findmypast.co.uk have many records relating to migration on our website as do our sister brands findmypast.com and findmypast.com.au. This conference is an excellent opportunity for genealogists to learn about the records of migration in a framework ideally suited for the purpose"

Details of the conference can be found on the website www.exodus2013.co.uk together with many stories of migration to, from and within the British Isles
