EXPERT advice was available to amateur genealogists in Dundee yesterday when TV historian Nick Barratt launched a workshop on tracing family trees.

Mr Barratt, who appears on the TV show Who Do You Think You Are? was in the city for the second annual Angus and Dundee Roots Festival The event, which began on Saturday and runs until Sunday, aims to provide a focus for those whose ancestors came from the region to visit and find out more about their ancestral homeland.

It features a packed programme of events with visits to ancestral sites, workshops, talks, demonstrations and film shows. The free workshop at the Central Library also gave family historians the chance to speak to experts from local archives and national organisations as well as highly-experienced family history researchers.
