Genealogy Modelling Kinship – Are We Related ?
The Kingsley Norris Memorial Lecture
Presenter – Dr Alan C Smith, FInstP FIET FRAS
Genealogy is the study of our family – but how large is it and are we related? Our speaker today will describe Pedigree – and Cousin – Collapse and how these can be addressed scientifically. We will look at ancestry and cousin relationships in general and discover some surprising conclusions about who we are and to whom we are related.
Taking place in the BMI, the Sir Arthur Sullivan Hall, on the ground floor
The Kingsley Norris Memorial Lecture is always by a society member.
It was from a germ of an idea of Dr. Stuart Kingsley Norris, retired surgeon at Birmingham Eye Hospital, that BMSGH now Midland Ancestors, was established in 1963. As its pioneering founder member, after his untimely death in 1972, this annual lecture was set up in his memory.
