Who Do You Think You Are? 2013

15 February 2013

If you're heading to this year's Who Do You Think You Are? Live show and are hoping to speak to some of our experts, here's a handy guide to where you can find us.

Before the show

If you're planning to visit The National Archives the day before the show (Thursday 21 February), you might be interested in our 'Focus on...' sessions, covering several aspects of family history research.  

At the show

For the first time ever, we'll have our own theatre at the show. This will be open twice a day for a range of talks from our experts. Tickets for our theatre are free to collect on the day from the Workshops Ticket Desk, located in the upstairs gallery. Alternatively, you can guarantee your seat by buying your ticket in advance at a cost of £2. Please note, all sessions are subject to capacity.
We'll also be giving some workshops in the Society of Genealogists' (SOG) workshop programme, and taking part in the Ask the Experts sessions.

Throughout the show you'll be able to find us giving talks and advice about our records on other exhibitors' stands, including Ancestry, findmypast, TheGenealogist.co.uk, FamilySearch, Archives for London, the Caribbean Family History Group, the Metropolitan Police Heritage Centre and in the Military Pavilion.

We hope to see you there!
