Ringing in the changes Genealogy in 2019

As we ring in the New Year and welcome another exciting 12 months of genealogy research, we look ahead to developments in this fast-growing hobby. Karen Clare asked a range of family history experts and organisations to reveal what delights 2019 will bring for family history enthusiasts everywhere

Else Churchill, Genealogist at the Society of Genealogists

With DNA genealogy testing kits being the second most popular product ordered in the last Amazon Black Friday sale, it’s safe to say that we have now reached the point where this is the way most people start looking at their family history. Developments in testing suggest we will soon be extracting DNA from our ancestors, not by cheek swabs of course, but from the envelopes and stamps they licked.

While I’m sure this is exciting and will open new pathways to cousins and distant ancestry, it’s clear that genealogy from sources, records and evidence remain essential to explain the clues and matches given by DNA. This year’s SoG Getaway in May 2019 will give our members a chance to spend a whole week interpreting what a DNA genealogy test can tell you and how to use the results to complement your family trees and to follow the documentary trail in the library.

RafiMendelsohn, Director of PR & Social Media, MyHeritage
