Who Do You Think You Are? Live! turned out to be almost exactly as expected. The hallways and aisles in the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), in Birmingham, England, were crowded with thousands of genealogists. I know it must have been a great event simply because I was so tired at the end of each day!
The annual Who Do You Think You Are? Live! event is the largest genealogy conference in the UK and I believe it is the second-largest in the world. (RootsTech in Salt Lake City appears to be the largest.) I never obtained a headcount of visitors to the Who Do You Think You Are? Live! but it obviously was in the many of thousands of family historians and others with an interest in history and in researching their family trees.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, I have the equivalent of about 72,000 words available at http://eogn.com/images/newsletter/albums/Birmingham-2016/album/index.html. That is an online photo album containing many of the photos I took at the conference. It should give you a feel of the exhibits hall and “theatres” at the conference.
