Speed-relating: family history in the digital age

Professor Graeme Davison provides an academic perspective on how the internet revolution has transformed genealogical research.

He discusses the ways in which digital technology and communication are not just making family history easier, but also subtly transforming its character. Using pilgrimage as a metaphor for family research, he notes the enjoyment gained from the researcher's journey through the records as well as in the final result.

Professor Davison is a Sir John Monash distinguished professor at the School of Historical Studies at Monash University.

This Don Grant Memorial Lecture was part of the 2007 Family History Feast.
