WDYTYA Live Day One

It was a busy day on the first day of the Who Do Think You Are Live event at Kensington, Olympia. Most of the exhibitors from previous years were back, there were a few people missing including Louise St Denis. Her UK-based colleagues from the National Institutes for Genealogical Studies were there.
Helen Osborn from Pharos Teaching and Tutoring mentioned that Sherry Irvine is preparing a course which will be particular interest to BC residents.
BIFHSGO president Glenn Wright and I had conversations with two potential speakers for the next BIFHSGO conference - more soon. BIFHSGO members Ed and Elizabeth Kipp seemed to be enjoying the event. Lesley Anderson was busy in her role with Ancestry.ca including as part of a group presenting a session streamed online.
The National Library of Wales is preparing to launch their digitized newspaper collection free online on March 9th, funded by a grant from the EU.
