AGRA announces conference for 2019

Genealogical Conference for 2019 announced by AGRA

The Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives (AGRA) has announced plans for a family history conference at Pembroke College, Oxford on 27 and 28 September next year. It follows a very successful conference held at St John’s College, Cambridge two years ago.

This year’s theme is ‘Bloomin’ Ancestors!: Giving Your Family History Personality’. Delegates will have the opportunity to listen to some of the best family history speakers around on fleshing out your family tree. They can also enjoy a memorable dinner in the College’s age-old dining hall.

All too often our ancestors are just names on the pedigree sheet. How much fun would it be to find out more about their lives, feelings and thoughts. Conference speakers will suggest ways that delegates can do and share their experiences of doing so. And there will be plenty of time for you to share your experiences as well.

The conference organisers are also looking for experts to speak at the event. More details can be found at

Full conference details will be released in December. In the meantime, potential attendees can register their interest by joining the AGRA mailing list. A separate AGRA Conference website – - will be going live shortly.
