Our Conference will be held in St John’s College, Cambridge University. St John’s is truly steeped in history being founded in 1511, and famous for the Bridge of Sighs across the River Cam. The College was used for filming The Theory of Everything based on the life of the famous physicist Stephen Hawking. Alumni include the classicist Roger Ascham, the social reformer William Wilberforce, the poet William Wordsworth, the physicist Paul Dirac, and the athlete Christopher Brasher.

The College is open to visitors and tourists all year round.

St John’s is the ideal location, right in the historic centre of Cambridge. Our Conference starts with a banquet dinner in the 16th century College Hall, with an after dinner speaker well known to genealogists in the UK. Conference delegates will be able to stay in the College overnight on Friday 16th September 2016.

On Saturday 17th September 2016, the Conference itself takes place in the modern conference centre.

There is car parking at the College.
