Here you will find under one roof leading genealogy experts, one-to-one sessions, information workshops and over 150 exhibitions specialising in researching your family tree.

Throughout Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 February, Royal Commission buildings expert, Richard Suggett, author of Introducing Houses of the Welsh Countryside, will be offering free surgeries on house histories. Please bring along any photographs of buildings or copies of house histories for interpretation and advice. Everyone is welcome.
