Yet another great day was had by all those who attended this years WHHA Fair at the Birkenhead Town Hall.
Relatively Seeking UK was one of the almost 70 exhibitors, stalls and local friends groups attending this years WHHA fair. Whilst the visitor numbers were slightly down on last year, it was still a very well attended show with over 1100 visitors attending.
As always there was a wide array of local societies, with vast amounts of information and documentation about their local area of interest.
To further add to the enjoyment there were many stands selling new and used books, postcards and other assorted memorabilia. This ranged from local history to information on the history of the wars and so much more.
Our hats go off to those stands whose staff had dressed up in period uniforms or outfits of the different eras they represented it gave such an exciting feel to the history they were sharing with the visitors.
A very busy day was had by all !!!
Once again this year we had 4 members of the Relatively Seeking UK team on hand. We thought we would have had a little time for each of us to take a couple of breaks and explore the rest of the show. However, as in previous shows, we were worked off our feet from the moment the show opened until almost 30 minutes after it officially closed.
We had an even larger display showing the different categories of things we can help people out during their research. From our Genealogy research service. Charts and Printing Services. Photo Restoration and Digital Imaging Services Location Photography and Video Production Services. Our specialist in Heraldry and Family Crest Research and Design. Together with information about our Tailor-Made Family History Tours. Here we take people around the localities and areas their ancestors once lived and worked.
We were also showing and selling some of the wide range of, Folders, Binders, Acid-Free Sleeves and Pockets, Various Styles and Types of Charts. we had a wide range of exclusive hand made Family Tree orientated jewellery and other items which sold extremely well and many other accessories to help you with your research and organisation.
A date to put in your calendars ready for next years Wirral History and Heritage Association Fair, it will be held in March 2021 and we will publish the dates as soon as they become available..
Full Steam Ahead !!!
Yet again since the WHHA Fair all of our team have been worked off their feet. Following up on the hundreds of enquiries and they have also been busy updating and researching numerous new family research projects for both new and existing clients.
We have had dozens of wonderful old photographs in various states of distress submitted for different levels of restoration. They ranged from a basic tidy up and enlargement to total rebuilds and restoration projects.
With our recently upgraded computers and the latest photo editing software packages we are able to do some amazing things to bring back the almost lost images of peoples ancestors and loved ones.
