WDYTYA Live 2015: Highlights


The MyHeritage team had a fantastic time last week at the Who Do You Think You Are Live? 2015 show in Birmingham, UK.

Thousands interested in exploring their family history flocked to the show this year. We enjoyed meeting new friends and catching up with old ones who visited our booth to say hello.
