WDYTYA?Live in Scotland gets underway

Who Do You Think You Are? Live opened its doors at 9:30am this morning at Glasgow's Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre.

For family historians of Irish heritage who are heading that way today or tomorrow, you'll be pleased to know that you can get specifically Irish genealogy advice and direction from any one of these four exhibitors:

Ancestor Network:
This collective of professional genealogists from Ireland offers research, education and several other services. Find out more by visiting Stand D17.

APGI: Members of the Association of Professional Genealogists in Ireland (MAPGIs) will be providing free Irish genealogy consultations on Table 7, as well as being part of the SOG's 'Ask the Experts' Sessions.

NIFHS: The North of Ireland Family History Society supports its members with advice, a Journal, Newsletter, books, CDs, and a great Library. They're friendly, too! Meet them on Table 10.

ULF: The Ulster Historical Foundation offers research, education and publishing services. They also have a terrific range of books for sale. Grab a bargain at Table 9.

There's only one Irish-themed lecture at the Glasgow show. It's on Saturday, at 11:15am in Theatre 1, and will see Helen Kelly MAPGI presenting Starting your Irish Family History, which is aimed at beginners.
