Due to the sell-out success of last year's London show, the extremely popular face to face Free 'Ask the Experts' section will be run at all of the Discover Your Ancestors Family History Shows this year. We're also expanding this area to cover your questions on DNA, Dating Photographs, Medals, Military Service and Research Problems. So don't forget to bring your ancestors' medals, records and photos along!

New for the 2019 shows we are also introducing Q&A panel sessions, where you can get your family history queries answered by a group of experts. So make sure you have time to ask those family history questions when planning your day.

 

Each show will have two lecture areas with Free Talks given by various expert independent speakers including Photo Dating Expert and Fashion Historian Jayne Shrimpton, DNA Expert Debbie Kennett and others we have lined up and will announce in later emails and on our Facebook page.

With over 100 tables already booked, space is filling up fast! If you or anyone you know are interested in exhibiting please contact bookings@thefamilyhistoryshow.com.
