I had a lovely few days in London, the highlight of which was meeting up with second cousin David and his wife Morag (related to the Frasers of Aberdeenshire). So much to share and talk about.
The Who Do You Think You Are Live event was interesting, and I talked to a few people who gave sparked interesting lines of thought and future research. But on the whole I’m going to have to say that the event seemed to lack something, though I can’t quite put my finger on what it was. The talks and the stands seemed to be aimed mainly at beginners: it would have been good to have some more “meaty” talks and exhibits.
Amazingly it didn’t rain while I was in London so I was able to get out and about. If anyone is interested, I thoroughly recommend The Georgians exhibition at the British Library. Not sure I can recommend a visit to the V&A during a school holiday week!
Off to catch up with my blog posts now.
