Notes from Who Do You Think You Are? Live 2010: Findmypast.co.uk

11 Mar

In this series of posts I hope to provide you with some of the highlights from Who Do You Think You Are? Live 2010.

The other big UK genealogy site, Findmypast.co.uk had a prominent stand at the show. It was divided into two, one side being a mock-up of a tram (serving as a mini-theatre) and the other side had computer terminals where you could access the website for free.

You can find a report of their activities at the show over on their website and also on their blog. It doesn’t look like any of the presentations have been put up, although they do have a useful set of video tutorials on their site. The video entitled Digitising the records, is especially interesting as it shows the preparation work involved in getting the 1911 census online.
