The APG’s international committee has been exploring the growing need for professional genealogists in markets outside of North America. The committee, with members in England, India, Ireland, Israel and the U.S., examines opportunities to share the APG message and promote international awareness of, and interest in, professional genealogical services. The upcoming exhibition will be the APG’s first conference presence outside of North America.
About the Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE 2011 Conference and Exhibition The Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE 2011 conference, the U.K.’s largest and most comprehensive family history event, will be held February 25−27, 2011 at London’s historic Olympia Exhibition Centre. The conference, held since 2007, was created in response to overwhelming interest in the U.K.’s television show Who Do You Think You Are?, now in its seventh season. The show features nearly 200 exhibitors and more than 100 seminars and workshops. Celebrities from the U.K. show will also appear. See http://www.whodoyouthinkyouarelive.co.uk for more information.
“The APG represents more than 2,000 professional genealogists in more than 30 countries. The Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE conference will give APG an opportunity to meet approximately 15,000 family history enthusiasts and educate them about our mission and the availability of our members to serve them.”
