Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE 2009

The third WDYTYA? Live show is currently being prepared for its run between February 27th and March 1st 2009, at London's Olympia. So here's a sneak preview of what to expect...!

The show will be split into three main categories. First is the Society of Genealogists Family History Show, a platform for family history societies and specialist exhibitors to hold stalls and exhibitions of interest. Secondly, there is the Military History Pavilion, with three main areas comprising of military exhibitors, stands on medals and records and other information, and a new feature, a memorabilia checkpoint, a sort of Antiques Roadshow for military artefacts.

The third and largest area of the show is the Family History section, with many new features this time round. There will be TV Historians, celebrities from the show, various vendors selling family history products and vendors, and then various other activities classed under 'Features'. These include a new Culture and Heritage section (ancestral toruism, heritage travel theatre etc), a new Regional Pavilion dealing with subjects from Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Internationally, a new DNA Lab, a new Photo Lab, and all the other usual events you would expect at WDYTYA, including the SoG's workshops, experts areas etc.

Sponsored by Ancestry, it's going to be an another impressive line-up. For more information, visit .
