WDYTYA Live Glasgow announces vendors and exhibitors

Who Do You Think You Are Live has uploaded a list of the vendors who will be attending the show at the end of next week at the SECC in Glasgow. The list is accessible at

Amongst those exhibiting are Ancestry, the National Records of Scotland (with ScotlandsPeople), FamilySearch, the Universities of Strathclyde and Dundee, Deceased Online, and many others, including all the way from Australia, Unlock the Past, to promote both its genealogy books and genealogy cruises (I'll be helping on the stall!). Who Do You Think You Are magazine will also have a special edition to tie in with the event, including an article written by yours truly on how to start off with your research!

There is much more of a Scottish presence this year, with many archives and family history societies, but also some surprise omissions from the main UK vendors - for example, FindmyPast is not attending, nor the British Newspaper Archive, The Genealogist, nor even the National Archives from Kew. However, with a packed talks programme and a chance to talk with folk on many stands not normally exhibiting at the London event, this will be very similar and yet very different experience at the same time - and above all, a fun day out if you want to get stuck into your ancestral research!


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And please consider purchasing the great new version of Caledonia by The Libations at 79p via - all profits go to help fund Scottish foodbanks
