We’d like to thank everyone who applied to be on the guest list for our upcoming series of centenary themed family history events featuring Sir Tony Robinson.




The deadline has now closed for the dates in Brighton, Liverpool and Chelmsford and guests have been selected at random. Those who were successful have now been notified by email.


Due to the larger capacity of the Newcastle venue, we still have some spaces available for Wednesday 24 September 2014 at the Discovery Museum.  As such, the deadline for registration to this event has been extended until Friday 22 August 2014.


The evening will see Sir Tony share his top tips and fascinating thoughts on family history as well as discussing the importance of remembering our wartime ancestors in the centenary year.


Click  here to register your details for the Newcastle event only and we will let you know if your application has been successful by Monday 25 August 2014.


If you have already applied for tickets for the Newcastle event – don’t worry you are still eligible for the ballot and will be notified via email following the close of the extended deadline.

Attended this event in Sussex last night. It was fabulous and I highly recommend it. Thank you to the ancestry team for putting these on and for Tony Robinson for being such an inspiring, funny, intelligent, moving, genuine speaker.
