National Family History Fair 2008

The National Family History Fair at Gateshead International Stadium on Saturday 13th September 2008 (from 10.00am to 4.30pm) is the second largest genealogy event in the UK, after Who Do You Think You Are? Live, with plenty to see and do. As well as stalls from some of Britain's leading genealogy suppliers, there are two seminar rooms running talks, with guest speakers including Amanda Bevan from the National Archives (Kew), Sarah Paterson from the Imperial War Museum, and Ian Hartas from

From a Scots point of view, there will a presence from the Aberdeen and North East Scotland FHS, Glasgow and West of Scotland FHS, Scotland's People, SAFHS, the Scottish Genealogy Society and the University of Strathclyde, amongst others, but also many of the big players whose records equally affect Scotland, such as several of the mainstream genealogy magazines, the Imperial War Museum, Parish Chest, the National Archives (Kew), the War Memorials Trust, and others.

I'll also be there, helping out, so if you are a reader of this blog, do say hi! For more information on the event, visit .

Admission is £3.50, though accompanied children under the age of 15 will get in for free.
