Seminar events Preserving Your Study for Posterity *** this virtual seminar is scheduled to start at 7.00pm [London, UK time] on Wednesday May 12th 2021 *** There has been much discussion recently on various Guild forums on the subject of study preservation.

What viewers said about the recent virtual seminars: Thank you for putting these sessions online I love these webinars – I really value being able to attend from home; thank you so much to all of SemSub for making this possible Good to be able to reach a wider audience on the day of the “seminar” I have found this webinar series varied and most interesting, combining the approaches of genealogists and those more interested in what bulk data can reveal; the series has been very well organised, and for a newer member an excellent introduction to the group and its interests I have enjoyed this series as it has exposed my mind to wider thoughts I enjoyed the fact that I could participate from home; yes, it’s nice to mingle at Guild seminars, but this is SO much more accessible One of the best things about the Guild is their seminars Missed the “meeting other members” element of a seminar Looking forward to the day when we can once again meet in person Missed meeting up with delegates over dinner the evening before an “in person” seminar Other events For details of other events organised by the Guild, go to the Events Calendar.
