Our February Zoom-based meeting was treated to an enthralling, ‘slide-free’ talk by Dr Nick Barratt. Nick, an author, researcher and world-leading genealogist, is known to many for being the creative force behind the BBC’s immensely popular ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’, a show that has now clocked up 17 seasons, and is in no small way responsible for inspiring a new generation of family historians.
A full report is available here, but we continue to receive plaudits for Nick's talk, from members and visitors alike. The following represents just a selection of the highly positive feedback received:
'Dr Nick Barrett was most engaging, and [we] could see that he is passionate about the importance of properly kept archive materials and these being available to all.'
'I thought Nick was an excellent speaker and thoroughly enjoyed his talk. Very interesting, and helpful to my own family history research project.'
'I was able to join the meeting tonight after a few failed attempts. I am so pleased I did, as it was another excellent talk.'
'Thank you for a wonderful meeting this evening.'
'I really enjoyed his talk.'
'It was a super meeting. Those of us that were lucky enough to see it and hear it had a lovely treat.'
'As a new member, my first "taste" of the group was … an excellent talk.'
