Who Do You Think You Are Live Day 1

A truly manic day yesterday for the first WDYTYA Live, very busy indeed, but very good fun! We launched the new Family and Local History Handbook which was almost literally flying form the stall (811). When I came up for air I managed to grab a few video interviews with Alasdair MacDonald, Scotland's rep for Family Tree DNA, Tom Dennis, the new guv'nor at Your Family Tree, and Patricia and Caroline from the University of Dundee's genealogy programme, which I will place online in a couple of days time when back home in Alba. I also managed to catch up with The Pharos Teaching and Tutoting Ltd team, Helen Grant from Scottish Monumental Inscriptions, who now has her data launched on the Deceased Online platform, as well as the DOL team itself, with lots of exciting new developments to come, and Debra and Amy from FindmyPast - this year's dress code on their stall being English vicars!

The evening ended with a great reception organised by FindmyPast, where I discovered that one of Britain's most well known genies shares the same obsession with travels in time and space as I do - and I'm not talking family history here!

A few quick snaps...!


More soon!
