Tracing Your Scottish Family History on the Internet : A Guide for Family Historians, Paperback / softback Book

Tracing Your Scottish Family History on the Internet : A Guide for Family Historians Paperback / softback

Part of the Tracing Your Ancestors series

Paperback / softback

Description

Scotland is a land with a proud and centuries long history that far pre-dates its membership of Great Britain and the United Kingdom.

Today in the 21st century it is also a land that has done much to make its historical records accessible, to help those with Caledonian ancestry trace their roots back to earlier times and a world long past. In Tracing Scottish Family History on the Internet, Chris Paton expertly guides the family historian through the many Scottish records offerings available, but also cautions the reader that not every record is online, providing detailed advice on how to use web based finding aids to locate further material across the country and beyond.

He also examines social networking and the many DNA platforms that are currently further revolutionising online Scottish research. From the Scottish Government websites offering access to our most important national records, to the holdings of local archives, libraries, family history societies, and online vendors, Chris Paton takes the reader across Scotland, from the Highlands and Islands, through the Central Belt and the Lowlands, and across the diaspora, to explore the various flavours of Scottishness that have bound us together as a nation for so long.
