Just 1 day to go! Yes, Who Do You Think You Are? Live 2016 is upon us and will open its doors TOMORROW! Some of the Family Tree team are already setting up our stands at the NEC in Birmingham and we can't wait to see lots of you lovely family historians at the show!
This is the last in our series of countdown posts to the show, but we're ending on a high with one of our most brilliant family history experts, Simon Wills.
Dr Simon Wills is a genealogist and author with more than 25 years’ experience of researching his ancestors. He has a particular interest in maritime history and his latest book is Tracing Your Seafaring Ancestors (Pen & Sword). He is also author of Voyages from the Past, How Our Ancestors Died and of the historical novel Lifeboatmen.
Simon has written many excellent articles on maritime history for Family Tree, and you can download the latest one, 'Royal Navy on camera in the Great War', right now by clicking the link below:
If you enjoy the article, you will definitely want to attend Simon's workshop 'Seafaring ancestors on camera', which is at 4.15pm-5pm on Saturday 9 April in SoG Theatre 3.
