We will begin at 4 pm UK time with an introduction from the Shetland Family History Society. Following this, we will have four presentations by our guest speakers. After the fourth speaker, we will have a live Q&A session with our speakers and invited panellists: your opportunity to put questions to the experts.
The presentations will be available to watch on YouTube two days before the event: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5VXwVpQmulQBsI5cQIp0EEchG3PF32g-
