WDYTYA Stuff

NEWS

Whether you're off to the forthcoming Who Do You Think You Are? Live 2011 event next month or not, you can't seem to avoid news about it at the moment.  I should imagine the latest issue of the WDYTYA? magazine (just out) will be giving it a good airing - and I understand they have an event guide as a pull-out, too (the 'free' CD also includes plenty of interest to those of you with East Yorkshire interests).  The Wandering Genealogist also has some tips for the event - see his entries of 21st & 28th January.

The latest edition of S&N Genealogy's E-Newsletter also has plenty to say about the coming event - but there are a good few other bits and pieces worth taking in, too, so give it a glance.

MEDIA NEWS

OK, I may be a bit late with this one, but there's still some benefit to be gained by the following TV/radio guide for the week, here.
