2. Attend the ‘DNA: Passport to your Family History Journey (Friday, 11-12pm, Theatre 1)
It wouldn’t be a Who Do show without Sir Tony Robinson joining us in the theatre and on the stand. This year, you’ll find Tony in Theatre 1 on Friday from 11-12pm chatting about DNA as a passport to your family history journey. Explore the journeys your DNA and ancestors have gone on, throughout history and geography, to make you who you are today. Tony will also be swinging by the Ancestry stand later in the day on Friday.

4. Attend ProGenealogist’s DNA and the Paper Trail: An Essential Combination (Saturday, 11-12pm, Theatre 1)
We’re pretty excited about what DNA can do for family history researchers, but records and collections still play a vital role within research practises. So how can DNA assist you in the paper trail, and vice versa. Join our ProGenealogist team as they discuss this topic in Theatre 1 from 12-1pm on Saturday.


5. Attend A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived with Adam Rutherford (Saturday, 3-4pm, Theatre 1)
He’s the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Inside Science, the author of A Brief History of Everyone who Ever Lived: The Stories in Our Genes, and knows a thing or two about DNA. Geneticist, Adam Rutherford will be taking over Theatre 1 on Saturday from 3-4pm to give a brief history of everyone who ever lived. This is one workshop that is not to be missed!
