Who Do You Think You Are? Live, London

I have just spent two wonderful days at Who Do You Think You Are? Live in London. I had promised myself last year that I would attend all three days in 2014, but with the days changing from Friday – Sunday to Thursday – Saturday, it was all a bit tricky, so two days again…

Who Do You Think You Are? Live : Day Two

Saturday was another busy day at  Who Do You Think You Are? Live.  I had three talks booked, as well as an Ask the Expert session, but otherwise had more time than Friday to wander around the stands and catch up with some friends. First up for me was “Your Irish Ancestors and the Law”,…

Who Do You Think You Are? Live : Day One

Last weekend I attended the Who Do You Think You Are? Live exhibition held at the Olympia in London.  It runs for three days, and I went along for the Friday and Saturday. What struck me on Friday was how CRAZY busy it was in comparison to last year.  I like going on the Friday,…

WDYTYA? Live ~ wrap up

Today I enjoyed a lovely lie-in and leisurely breakfast at my hotel, before heading home by train.  I would have loved to have visited WDYTYA?

Day One WDYTYA? Live

Couldn’t believe how busy the place was today! I arrived just before opening time of 10am and the queue of ticket holders outside seem to go on forever. It was at this point I was very glad I had splashed out and got a fast track platinum ticket, which enabled me to bypass the queues…

WDYTYA? Live ~ one more sleep to go!

Who Do You Think You Are? Live, the biggest family history event in the English-speaking world, begins tomorrow! Apparently the District Line between Earl’s Court and Kensington Olympia is on a restricted service on Friday, so if you’re going along tomorrow, check the Transport for London website, for an alternative route. The walk doesn’t look…

Anything but Filing ~ Sorting Saturday

I had planned to tackle some filing today, but I seemed to have found a myriad of things to do instead! I’ve just installed a WordPress plugin called Organise Series, so that it’s easier for my readers to follow a series of posts that I write on a particular topic. My Brosnahan posts are ideal…
