To gain an idea of what to expect, my report from the London show this year in February is available at http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/wdytyalive - and here's the video the organisers used to explain what to expect to those attending that event:
The SECC venue is a little smaller than the above, but the Who Do You Think You Are brand, combined with the forthcoming new series (I have a possible start date, but sworn to secrecy just now!), should make this an equally exciting event. I'll certainly be there, giving some talks, taking part in some panels and helping on a stall, but more on that in due course...
The organisers have kindly given me a unique code for British GENES readers to get discounted tickets - here's the deal:
We have a special offer: you can get two tickets for just £24 by quoting CP24* when booking on www.whodoyouthinkyouarelive.co.uk or by phoning 0844 873 7330.
*£2.25 transaction fee applies. Offer ends 15 August 2014. Usual on door price is £18 each. (Calls cost 6p per minute from a BT landline plus network extras.)
Keep an eye out for some more news soon on the show - and on the new series itself!
And if you're desperate for some advice sooner than that, leave me a question for a live web chat on Who Do You Think You Are magazine's forum this Friday, from 1pm-2pm - see http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/who-do-you-think-you-are-magazine-web.html
