The Who Do You Think You Are? Live 2013 show proved a big success again this year, being the largest family history event in the world. Despite the chilly weather, large crowds gathered at the start of the day to make the most of their visit.

The show encompassed the best in the field of family history, with three major launches from TheGenealogist.co.uk, expert talks from many speakers including John Titford and Celia Heritage, celebrities such as Greg Wallace and John Barnes, family history societies, and much more.

The talks both from celebrities and from other expert genealogy speakers were informative and of interest to both the experienced and amateur family historian alike.

Mark Bayley, online expert from TheGenealogist, provided an in-depth talk on ‘Breaking down brick walls’, which was very popular. John Titford gave his popular ‘Ey Up Mi Duck’ and ‘London Ancestors’ talks, and Celia Heritage discussed how to find a missing ancestor in the birth, marriage and death indexes.
