On Monday, 7 August 2017, Peter Christian will give a talk to Oxfordshire FHS entitled “The Future of Genealogy on the Internet”.

Peter says:

The Internet has become an essential medium for genealogists, both for access to records and for publicising your pedigree. This talk will look at how things are developing to try and get an idea of what online resources and facilities we may expect to see in the future. However, Internet developments also raise new issues for genealogists and some problems – barriers to access, the preservation of electronic data, personal privacy, for example – so we also need to consider the effects these may have on our research.

Peter spent five years as editor of the Society of Genealogists’ computer journal “Computers in Genealogy”, and was also responsible for setting up the Society’s first web site.
The author of countless articles about online resources for family history, he has also written a number of books on the subject, including ‘Census: The Family Historian’s Guide’ (co-authored with David Annal) and the best-selling ‘The Genealogist’s Internet’, now in its 5th edition.
He is a Fellow of the Society of Genealogists and one of the Trustees of Genuki.

We meet at the Exeter Hall, Oxford Road, Kidlington, OX5 1AB, with the meeting starting at 7:30pm. Doors open at 7:15pm, when there will be a warm welcome for all.
