Today Paul Milner, Mdiv, MSc will give the final keynote presentation. I have no idea what his topic will be, but I am sure it will be something interesting. He is the author of 6 books on English and Scottish research, including Buried Treasure: What’s in the English Parish Chest. According to his website, “Paul has been designing genealogy workshops, writing books, and lecturing for over 35 years. He holds an advanced degree in Theology and is particularly knowledgeable about the church and its role in record keeping. As a genealogist he speaks on a variety of topics relating to research in the British Isles, migration to North America and research methodology.” For more information visit milnergenealogy.com.

Following the keynote address, there are a number of sessions dedicated to record sets, including church records, unique and unusual records, and military records. Paul Milner and others will present the British Isles research track. The International track will cover Italian, Latin, Slavic, and Spanish research as well as how to use the research wikis to begin your foreign research. There is a track dedicated to Scandinavian research as well.
