We’ve been having a really great time in London, not only seeing the sights, but also enjoying Who Do You Think You Are? Live. We’ve met some really interesting people at the event, which is the largest of it’s kind in the UK. It was also announced this week that Who Do You Think You Are? Live will be coming to Glasgow at the end of August, exciting news for those with any interest in Scottish genealogy.
It’s been great to be able to meet people face to face rather than just chat on Twitter! Talking in person helps you to understand what motivates people and what they want to achieve. You also discover the special interests that set them apart from other genealogists.
If you’re planning to attend today (Saturday 22 February 2014) here are a few highlights to make sure you catch:
Family Tree magazine are giving away their March edition at the fair. Watch our short interview with the editor to learn more about them.
My Heritage - A great site to share your family tree as well as grow it. Go to their stand to see how it works.
Borders Journeys - At this stand you’ll find Ian Walker who can organize a tour of your ancestral homeland. Here's a short introduction to Ian and his business.
Family Tree DNA are offering some great deals and of course expert advice. There are a series of talks running throughout the day. If you're new to DNA genealogy the talk at 10:15 may be the one for you: Which DNA Test is Best for You?
