Fairs and Open Days
Some of our member societies will organise or be present at events of interest to veteran researchers and newcomers alike. You can find out more about each event by visiting the GENEVA list of forthcoming events.
Details of other events run by our Members Societies may be found on their own sites.
Fairs and Open Days offer family historians great opportunities to follow their interests and meet fellow enthusiasts. If you have a friend or relation who may be interested in setting off on the ancestor trail, these events are good occasions to introduce your local society and what it has to offer.
Many of the events take place near to other places of interest. So, if you don't live in the vicinity, it may be worth including one as part of a weekend away.
FFHS is on the road in 2018 and you can meet us at the following events:
- RootsTech, Salt Palace Convention Centre, Salt Lake City, US, 28 February to 3 March
- The Creative Craft Show, NEC, Birmingham, UK, 15-18 March
- The Big History Weekend, Liverpool, UK, 28-29 April
- The Name Event, Earls Court, London, UK, 5 and 6 May
- The Family History Show, Knavesmire Centre, York, UK, 23 June
If one of these events is local to you, please do come and visit our stand. We'll have experts from local family history societies on hand who will be delighted to hear about your family tree and offer tips on how to you can discover more of your ancestry.
