The Family History Show, London

Keynote speech by internationally renowned genenalogy blogger Dick Eastman.

The largest family history show in the south returns to Sandown Park in Esher. Although only in its second year, the London event is already attracting exhibitors and family history societies from all over the UK. In 2018 we have had to double the size of the venue and added an extra lecture theatre due to popular demand!
