Wanted - Researching Abroad roadshow ambassadors!

In August I will be heading once again to Australia and New Zealand to participate as a speaker in the Unlock the Past sponsored Researching Abroad roadshow (see, which will focus on British and European themes.

Both myself and Dirk Weissleider will be providing several presentations on the key themes (I'll be focussing in particular on Scotland and Ireland), but we will also be joined by many local speakers from down under whilst on our travels. As they say in my neck of the woods, it should be some craic!

Unlock the Past has just announced a new initiative to help try to promote the events, and that is to ask folk to consider registering as a Researching Abroad Roadshow Ambassador. There are perks involved for bloggers and societies who might wish to help promote the tour, so if you are interested, please do take a look at the terms at

I'm looking forward to heading back to Oz again in a few weeks time - hopefully see you there!

UPDATE: Dirk has also just recorded a short video inviting you to come along!
