For years, genealogy fairs have been held on the May Day weekend (the first week-end in May) in London. For the past two years, that event has been the "Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE" fair, with huge crowds attending. As mentioned in my article a few days ago, the 2009 edition of that fair is being moved to February 28 through March 2. See my earlier article at http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2008/06/who-do-you-thin.html for the details.
Now a NEW non-profit group of organizations has decided to offer a family history event on the traditional May Day weekend at a location to be announced. This will be in ADDITION to the February/March event at the Olympia Centre. The Family History Event (The FH Event) is taking place one day only, on Sunday 3rd May 2009.
The new event will PROBABLY take place at a prestige venue in the East End of London. The details are being ironed out at this time, and I suspect there will be more announcements before long.
