Competition - win tickets to Who Do You Think You Are Live in Glasgow

Don't say I'm not good to ye...! The good folks from Immediate Media Company, the people behind the forthcoming Who Do You Think You Are Live event in Glasgow from Friday 29th-Sunday 31st August 2014, have given me two complimentary tickets to give away in a competition. Each ticket is valid for one day's entry.

Evil Chris says the competition question should be something really tricky and selfish, such as "where exactly is the baptism record for my 2 x great grandfather John Brownlie MacFarlane of Glasgow, born sometime in the 1830s?" The man has been winding me up for 14 years...

However, Nice Chris says there's a load of competition happening now already here in Glasgow, and it's too warm to check a pile of emails for correct answers. So here's the deal - it's Commonwealth Games time just here right now, and clearly all British GENES readers want Scotland to win the Games, because this is where God's holiday home is. So all you need to do is just send me an email with the heading COME ON SCOTLAND! and include your name and the county where you live (not full address yet please), and I'll pick a winner, who will get both tickets. Deadline is next Saturday August 2nd at 12pm (midday). Email address is christopherpaton @

This competition is open to UK applicants only, I'm afraid, that way I can guarantee you get them in time by registered post. I'll notify the winner next weekend, at which point I'll ask for a full address to post them to.

Good luck!

NB: Don't forget that you can purchase tickets from WDYTYA Live via a promotion I've secured with them also - 2 tickets for £24. For the promotion code, visit
