There are secrets and discoveries to be made in every family’s history and thanks to the growth in digital resources, it’s now easier than ever to uncover these hidden pasts. ‘Home Truths’ is an opportunity for people researching their past to meet and discuss family history with academics and archivists working in this field. At the event you can explore how the digital revolution is reshaping family research and how we write family history.
Combining a panel discussion and workshop, ‘Home Truths’ also considers the ethics of family history: what responsibilities do we have to protect the wishes of our ancestors? How should we handle secrets that former generations sought to keep hidden? In family history we’re all specialists with much to learn from one another.
