How a chisel, a mule, a shipping container and a cloud contribute to family history

A thought-provoking journey through thousands of years of development of family history record keeping and record preservation. Not all technology over the millennia has changed and, surprisingly, the future is not entirely digital. You’ll see your own family history research and documentation in a new light.

Sharon Hintze is Director of the London Family History Centre in South Kensington, which is currently based at The National Archives at Kew. She is a frequent speaker and occasional writer on family history and a fifth generation family historian.
