Who Do You Think You Are Live in Glasgow update

Some developments on Who Do You Think You Are Live at the SECC in Glasgow from August 29th-31st...

The website at has been updated to fully reflect the Glasgow theme now, so you'll find articles there by Rosemary Bigwood for example on births, marriages and deaths in Scotland, as well as some useful resources to get underway with Caledonian research.

There's also some information on the venue, and in particular, a provisional talks timetable, though some talk slots are still TBC. This can be accessed directly at There's a fair range there, and it's particularly great to see so many members of our Scottish Genealogy Network amongst the speakers, including Michael Tobias, Judith Russell, Tahitia McCabe, Chris Halliday and Marie Dougan.

I previously announced that I was giving two talks at the event, on Northern Irish research, and on the fun and games surrounding Scottish marriage across the ages, but I've also now signed up to help as a panellist for a series of keynote workshops at lunchtime each day by genie chum Marie Dougan. Still early days on this, but from what I can gather Marie will be doing three technology themed talks, and then there will be a Q&A panel after each talk - there's more on all of this at

A list of exhibitors has as yet to go online, but show tickets are now available for the event at

You can also pre-book talks tickets via the following links:




As for news of celebrity involvement etc, no news as yet, but it can't be too long now before we know who will be there, and in particular who the exhibitors and societies are that will be in attendance.

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 FindmyPast - please reinstate the original Scottish census citations on your new site.
