I’ll be at the Who Do You Think You Are? Live show on Saturday 26 February, so please say hello if you see me – probably buying books from the Society of Genealogists’ second-hand books stand!
Here’s the official statement on the show:
“Who Do Think You Are? Live is the largest and most comprehensive family history show in the UK. Sponsored by Ancestry.co.uk and in association with The Telegraph, it returns to London’s Olympia on 25-27 February and is the best way to kick start your family history project in 2011!
“Whether you’re just getting started or having already completed significant research on your family tree, you’ll find all the help you need at the event. The Society of Genealogists Family History Show, now in it’s nineteenth year, is a major part of the show and will enable visitors to discover extensive local knowledge. You can attend one of over 100 workshops covering a wide variety of subjects.
“These include advice on searching online, researching around the world, identifying the fallen on the Western Front and researching before 1837. You’ll be able to identify military artifacts in the Military Pavilion, book a one-to-one session with a specialist genealogist in Ask the Experts, explore over two hundred exhibitors which include all the major record holders and even learn how DNA testing can further your research.
“With all the country’s top experts and genealogy services gathered under one roof, plus celebrities including Ainsley Harriott and Monty Don in the Who Do You Think You Are? Theatre, it’s an essential event for family historians!”
