Genealogy in the Sunshine

Peter Calver from Lost Cousins ( is organising a genealogy course event in Portugal from Saturday 15th - Saturday 22nd March entitled Genealogy in the Sunshine.

First proposed in June of this year (see the event is now confirmed as definitely going ahead, with five days of workshops taking place at Rocha Brava, a collection of villas and apartments on the Algarve. Yours truly has just agreed to be one of the speakers there, with several others soon to be confirmed. It's going to be warm, sunny, informative - and above all, a lot of fun!

Initially announced to Lost Cousins members, there are still a few spaces available - so if you fancy a week away from British weather in March for something a tad more hospitable in Portugal, drop Peter a line as soon as possible at

For further details on the event, consult the following recent Lost Cousins newsletters:

NB: Peter is co-ordinating the course side of things but attendees will be asked to make their own way there and to book their own accommodation (to avoid hefty travel agent fees). Peter will provide full details on how to do so though.


My latest book, Discover Scottish Civil Registration Records, is now available from (print) and (ebook), whilst Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet is available at My next Pharos Scottish course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the OPRs, starts Nov 13th - see
