Who Do You Think You Are? Live

On 24-26 February we will be attending Who Do You Think You Are? Live at London Olympia. This is the largest family history show in the world and is a great opportunity to meet lots of family history organisations under one roof.

This will be the sixth year that the BPMA has attended this event and we have always enjoyed meeting new people and telling them about our family history sources. Last year we had over 550 people visit our stand over the weekend and this year we would love to meet even more.

As well as having our usual stand in the Society of Genealogists section of the show (tables 116-117), we will also be participating in the new ‘Our Working Past’ area. This area examines the working lives of people in the past. We will have historic uniforms, photographs of postal workers on duty, and staff magazines available for handling and consultation. The staff magazines, in particular, provide a fascinating insight into life in the Post Office and include accounts of social events, stories and jokes.

We look forward to seeing you there!

  3. I have a complete set of The Post Magazine for 1934. I’m looking to sell it – but to a collector rather than a dealer. What would it be worth do you think?

  4. Sorry. meant The Post Office Magazine.

    • Sorry, as a museum and archive it would be unethical for us to provide a valuation of this material. We suggest you consult a reputable dealer.

      • Hi. I do understand. My father used to collect postal history and I’m busy finding homes for things. It’s not about the money – it’s only that I’d rather find collectors who would enjoy them rather than just selling to dealers who are usually only after profit.

      • We have noticed over the years that there are people who are interested in owning material of this nature. We’re sure you will be able to find an appropriate buyer.
