Scottish Records
2/8/17

It is simply not possible to do serious Scottish family history from Ancestry.com, FamilySearch, MYHeritage, FindMyPast and the other commercial sites. It’s not their fault – they just don’t have the records. Yet Scotland has the longest-reaching, best-maintained and most accessible records on the planet. This lecture will show how and where to get the real stuff!

Scottish Emigration
11/2/16

Throw an egg from a bus almost anywhere in America and the chances are you’ll hit someone claims “Scots-Irish” or “Scottish Highlands” ancestry, often without understanding the terms fully, and shot through with myth as to the reasons for emigrating (persecution, clearances, etc.). The reality is that most emigration was voluntary, for purely economic gain, and from the Lowlands. The Scots were the economic migrants par excellence of their day. They came to America in various waves, for various reasons, and ended up in various places.

11/2/16

Many of us are so focused on tracing our ancestry back in time that we overlook the ancestors our posterity will find most interesting—that of ourselves, our parents, and grandparents. As oral history is lost in only three generations, our grandchildren are likely to have almost no information about the lives of our own grandparents. Perhaps one of the greatest treasures we can leave our posterity is a rich description of the lives of our parents and grandparents.
