Among the exhibitors will be family history societies from many parts of Scotland, national and local heritage organisations, archives and museums, publishers of history-themed books, genealogy supplies companies and major names from the world of genealogy.

There’ll be free family history advice from professional genealogists who are part of the Scottish Genealogy Network and members of Lanarkshire FHS (including military and Irish specialists) to help you with your research.

Children under 12 are admitted free with a paying adult. There's good public transport; free parking; disabled access and facilities.
