Welcome to GENEVA

An online calendar of GENealogical EVents and Activities

This calendar is being run jointly on behalf of GENUKI and the Federation of Family History Societies.
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 used.
   –   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.

Submitting a GENEVA entry

Items for inclusion in the calendar should be submitted by filling in this web form. If there is need, I (Malcolm Austen) can be contacted by email - geneva@weald.org.uk. The calendar may show an unashamed bias towards events taking place in the UK & Ireland, but don't let that stop you sending me items for inclusion - just as long as they pertain to UK & Irish ancestry.

Event organisers are encouraged to check this calendar when picking a date to avoid clashes with other events in the same area. They are also encouraged to submit an entry for this calendar as soon as a date has been booked so that other organisers know about it and can try to avoid it.

Please note, however, that our policy is:
