Andrew Redfern

Andrew Redfern is an accomplished speaker, having delivered many workshops and presentations over the past 20 years.  Recently his work on AI and Family History has been sought after by numerous family history groups across Australia.  He was one of the keynote speakers at Family History Month Opening Ceremony 2023 and in conjunction with the Society of Australian Genealogists developed a 3 part seminar series on Using Artificial Intelligence in Family History.  With a background in education and technology, the integration of AI into his genealogical toolkit was a natural progression and he is excited by the possibilities while remaining aware of the limitations.  Andrew's engaging presentation style often includes fun and interactive activities to ensure participants learn the content in fun and interesting ways and the use of practical examples is a key feature of his courses.
