GENEVA is 'an online calendar of GENealogical EVents and Activities. This calendar is being run jointly on behalf of GENUKI and the Federation of Family History Societies. Event organisers are encouraged to check this calendar when picking a date to avoid clashes with other events in the same area. They are also encouraged to submit an entry for this calendar as soon as a date has been booked so that other organisers know about it and can try to avoid it. Please note that this calendar depends on your Family History Society submitting its events as well as you reading it. If your society's events are not listed, please complain to them rather than to me. If the calendar does not link to any further details, please don't ask me for further information - because I don't have any ...'
