The Family History Show is returning to York and London!
Saturday 25th June 2022 & Saturday 24th September
After surveying previous attendees, over 81% were looking forward to attending a show in person. With nearly two years of not having the freedom and interaction of a physical show, we found that people were looking forward to enjoying a great day out again, listening to live talks and asking questions face-to-face to experts and exhibitors. We have had many requests to hold another show and we are only too pleased to welcome everyone back!
