Evening Talk: Kevin Bacon Family History Laboratory

Monday 15 April 2019


An interactive experiment to make family history links between members and to verify if the ‘six degrees of separation’ has any relationship to Family History Research. It will explore the connections members have to each other and how they may be related by genes, place or event. The laboratory may stimulate members research and breakdown those brick walls to that elusive ancestor. Serendipity and Kismet are important research tools of family historians and are little used and explored, this laboratory will try to highlight their use.

Is on the Federation of Family History list of speakers. A member of the Guide of One Name Studies and a number of other Family History Societies. Compiler of the Brickmakers’ Index for the UK.
