No, I’m not blogging about The
Clash. I’m posting about what’s drawn some of your favorite American genealogy
bloggers across the Atlantic this week: the Who
Do You Think You Are? Live! genealogy show Feb 22-24 in London.
That’s “Who Do You Think You Are?” as in the BBC
television program that inspired the American version, which NBC cancelled after
last season (boo!).
Who Do You Think You Are? Live! is known for its high attendance (about 13,000 last
year) and large, vibrant exhibit hall. The 2013 show has more than 160 exhibitors
and sections for:
National Archives Theater with workshops on using British
national archives resources
Celebrity Theater with guests from the “Who Do You Think You Are?”
Photography Gallery focusing on old family photos (and featuring our own Photo
Detective and Family
Photo Detective book author Maureen A. Taylor)
Military Pavilion where experts from museums display artifacts and answer military
- Ask the Experts area for 20-minute consultations with genealogy pros
- DNA workshop area
The British Society of Genealogists also
is offering family history workshops.
We’ll bring you conference-related news announcements, as well as Maureen’s reports
on the Photography Gallery.
Feeling left out? Don’t: There’s no need to spring for an airline ticket, book a hotel
or wear holes in your walking shoes to attend our Winter
2013 Virtual Genealogy Conference—it also takes place this weekend, but at a computer
near you. You can view 15 video classes, interact with instructors and your fellow
exhibitors, and open up a swag bags of genealogy goodies, all while sporting your
bunny slippers. Click
