9-12 March: Bridging the Past & Future
AFFHO Congress 2018, Sydney

With a theme of Bridging the Past and Future, Congress will be a forum for engaging new people in family history, building the skills and knowledge of participants, making the most of technology and promoting societies.

The program consists of four days of lectures and workshops with a large exhibition component.  There’ll be plenty of opportunity to catch up with old family history friends and meet new ones at a welcome function and conference dinner. The program will offer a variety of topics and formats to help both the beginner and more seasoned researcher. 

The Time Travelling Genealogist
As family historians we are great at travelling back in time to investigate our ancestors and find out about their lives. So what happens if we travel forward in time? What are our descendants going to find out about us? We take 1000’s of photos, but will we know who are in them? We send emails and texts, but do we have bundles of letters to be found? In this session we will look at how we can preserve the present for the future.
