Now in its seventh year, Who Do You Think You Are? Live, is returning to London’s Olympia on 22-24 February 2013.
This is the UK’s leading family history event offering genealogical experts, informative workshops, resources from libraries, museums and archives and all the major online resources as well as dozens of family history societies - all under one roof.
You’ll be able to have your photographs dated and military memorabilia identified, attend some of the numerous workshops running all day, hear a celebrity from the television series talk about their personal search, discover your ancestral heritage using DNA, spend 20 minutes one-to-one time with an expert and have your heirlooms revealed by Eric Knowles.
The theme of this year’s show is Migration so you can expect workshops, companies, societies and experts exploring the subject. Has your research uncovered any ancestors from abroad or who left here for foreign shores?
The first celebrity confirmed to attend will be none other than Masterchef’s very own Gregg Wallace. Gregg’s episode focused on revealing the mystery and misfortune of his great grandfather. Appearing on Friday in the Celebrity Theatre, Gregg will provide more insight into his discoveries and the research process itself as well as sharing a bit of backstage gossip!
Alongside the photography experts in the gallery, Love to Learn will be presenting their new Scanning and Editing Old Photos online course in partnership with the Royal Photographic Society. You can investigate your old family photos and then discover how to enhance them online.
The National Archives will be returning to Who Do You Think You Are? Live and will be holding talks in the all-new The National Archives Theatre. These talks will be focused around the 2013 theme of Migration as well as providing information on how to use the Archives' extensive resources in your research.
Who Do You Think You Are? Live continues to bring together the best resources available for family historians everywhere.
