Thousands of family historians gathered in London last weekend for three packed days of expert advice, specialist workshops and celebrity speakers thanks to the return of Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE.

Since its inception in 2007, the show has grown to become the largest genealogy event in the world, attracting representatives from archives and leading online resources. Who Do You Think You Are? alumni Monty Don, Ainsley Harriott and Hugh Quarshie were also on hand to offer behind-the-scenes stories from their episodes of the TV series.

If you visited this year's show, we hope that you had a fantastic time. The Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine team were there the whole weekend, and it was great to be able to meet so many of you – but now we want to know what you think. What was your favourite part of the event? What could the organisers do better next year? Let us know by emailing your thoughts to Matt Elton at mattelton@bbcmagazines.com.

Even if you didn't go, you can download handouts from many of the Society of Genealogists talks for free here and the notes from the Ancestry.co.uk talks from here.
