Cork Genealogical Society has set the date and the theme for its seventh, one-day genealogical conference. It will take place at the Rochestown Park Hotel on Saturday 21 March. The theme gets right to the heart of the matter: Let’s Get the Family Tree Done!

That sentence may very well strike terror into the heart of the average family history enthusiast. Sitting down at home, pen in hand, facing a blank page, the burden of writing your family’s history weighing heavily on your shoulders . . . It sounds more like a nightmare than fun!

True, the family tree may well be a lifelong activity, and there’s certainly always more to find out. However, unless you produce a document at some point, and give copies to members of your extended family, there can be no denying that your research work will have ended in dismal failure.

This conference is not designed to make you feel guilty for not producing a family history. They aim to help you to tap into your creativity, and to spark your enthusiasm, and to show you how to write a document that will be treasured by generations of your family to come!
