Not this year - Last year La Gooner was fortunate enough to be given 2 tickets by Ron the Printer so we went together. It was a great day out and so easy to spend lots of money if you were so inclined!

Last year Ancestry were offering a 25% if you wanted to sign up or renew (and a free calico shopping bag). The discount would have covered the cost of the ticket if you took up their offer.

If anyone is going, take a packed lunch to save money. Enjoy the day, and hopefully get lots of tips. We'll be back next year ;-)

I haven't been for a few years, but decided to go this year as i will be in the UK. Yes, I agree, very easy to spend lots of money, but such a great Show :-)

Doesn't look like many GR folk are going :-(

I second what DET said. We had a great day and some of the parish CD's I got have proved very helpful in my research. I too could have spent a fortune given a chance.

I was going to go Saturday Karen, but had something else on, which has since be cancelled :-( There is a very slight possibility, I will go, but doubt it. Are you going with Sue?
