Read about historical events at the time they were happening. Perhaps you'll discover your ancestor in their local newspaper?
We can't believe that it's that time of year again already! This weekend sees the Who Do You Think You Are live show taking place from Friday the 22nd February to Sunday the 24th at Olympia in London. And we are going to be there!
So make sure you come and visit us at stand 631. This year we are bringing a scanning machine with us and we will scan your photos for you so that you have a safe digital copy to keep forever. So make sure you bring them along and we will scan them all for free.
As well as the Genes team, we have some experts on hand to offer you advice. On Friday we have our resident genealogist Anthony Adolph, who will be able to answer your questions and offer help with your brickwalls. On Sunday we will be joined by professional dress historian and photograph specialist Jayne Shrimpton. Jayne will be able to help you date those photos you found tucked away in a cupboard.
We're really looking forward to seeing you so please drop by and say hello.
