Welcome to GENEVA
An online calendar of GENealogical EVents and Activities
This calendar is being run jointly on behalf of GENUKI and the Family History Federation.
Please note that this calendar depends on your Family History Society submitting its events as well as you reading it. If your society's events are not listed, please complain to them rather than to me. If the calendar does not link to any further details, please don't ask me for further information - because I don't have any.
Event organisers should see: how to submit events to GENEVA.
The venue area codes are (mostly) the usual Chapman County Codes. The Rootsweb
Helpdesk has a
useful list with codes covering the rest of the
world. Where it seems more helpful, London postcode prefixes and other variants may be
– Events prefixed with have restricted access and are listed primarily for the benefit of other event organisers.
At the end of this page you'll find some other groups' event lists.
|Be notified of page updates:|
|The Society of Genealogists and The National Archives (Kew, UK) are now closed.
Check before you head to any event.
