Saturday 28th June, or has anyone visited it before. I am going with OH heard its one of the biggest in the country dont know how true, but three floors might take a while to get through. Luckily OH is now almost as interested in it as me so I get quite a lot of help with my research.

Going to Kendal Record Office the day before, have so much work to do there first, and stopping over in Harrogate, on the way to York.

Looking forward to it, only been to two other Family Tree Fairs in Stockport and Buxton and they were quite small.

Thanks Mac

Will look for you, wanting to go to that stall anyway.

Is it really as big as it says on the website, will it take us all day.

Website is or just google York Family History Fair for more bits of information and York is about seventy miles from Manchester.

The site gives you a list of all the stalls which will be there.
