The second day of Who Do You Think You Are? Live was another successful and enjoyable experience.
The crowds didn’t seem too bad today (or was it just me getting used to lots of people), perhaps a little busier than yesterday, but not as busy as I had expected, especially in the later afternoon.
There were some great talks today, first I attended the celebrity interview with Kate Humble, then a talk on the resources of the Imperial War Museum and the UK National Inventory of War Memorials. Michael Gandy spoke on problems with London ancestry and Mark Pearsall on Apprenticeship Records at The National Archives. Again I shall probably go into more detail next week.
I spent a bit longer talking to some of the exhibitors, I got some useful answers, places to look and people to contact, as well as some clues to identifying one of my unidentified photos.
Tomorrow should be a bit more laid back, there are still a couple of stands I need to visit and hopefully I will have time to get Ancestry to scan some of my documents, that are too big to fit on my scanner.
