Responding to a growing interest in family history research, the Jewish Genealogical Society will be exhibiting at the Who Do You Think You Are? show at London's Olympia this weekend.

JGS education officer Jeanette Rosenberg said "people are studying their genealogy to find out where their family have got to. They are keen to connect with living relatives all over the world, since frequently families were separated by the Holocaust."

This year, the show organisers have created a specific website area to help Jews trace their ancestors.
