Wha's Like us?

If you've ever wondered about your family history, where your family comes from, what skeletons might be lurking in your family tree, or whether or not you might be related to Bonnie Prince Charlie, then Wha's Like Us may help you find the answers.

An exciting, interactive day-long event, Wha's Like Us aims to offer useful and practical ways of researching a family tree, and uncovering those long held family secrets, in a fun and interactive way. It takes place in Stirlng's Tolbooth, in the City's historic 'Top of the Town'.

With talks from knowledgeable and experienced speakers, practical workshops, specialists who can help identify memorabilia, medals, jewellery and photographs and link them to dates, as well as a range of family history societies demonstrating their own successes, Wha's Like Us? will allow beginners and those more practised to gain more insight into finding their own history.

The day will culminate with internationally acclaimed crime writer Christopher Brookmyre being presented with his family's history - specially commissioned for Wha's Like Us.

Whether your interest is local history, family research, or just good stories, then Wha's Like Us offers a perfect opportunity to spend a day with our ancestors!
