During 2020 we have been hosting a series of free Scottish genealogy events, a series of conferences designed to help you trace your Scottish family tree.
Here are the presentations we are looking forward to on Sunday 6 December 2020:
‘The Highlands: Jacobites, Clearances and Emigration’, by Lorna Steele, Community Engagement Officer at the Highland Archive Centre.
'Understanding Scottish Inheritance Records' by Chris Paton, genealogist at www.scotlandsgreateststory.co.uk
'Researching Scottish Ancestors from a Distance', by B.J. Jamieson, genealogy reference specialist at Maine State Library.
'Using FindMyPast to go Beyond Basic Birth, Marriage & Death Records', by Myko Clelland, genealogist at FindMyPast.
‘Your Burning DNA Questions’, by Michelle Leonard of Genes & Genealogy.
'Borders Family History Society', an interview with Elma Fleming, chair of Borders Family Society.
'Orkney Family History Society', by Jackie Harrison of Orkney Family Society.
‘Using Kirk Session Records’ by Emma Maxwell, Genealogist at Scottish Indexes.
Genealogy Q&A, hosted by Graham and Emma Maxwell
We start at 7am UK time, which is in the evening in Australia and New Zealand. We keep going until about 11pm UK time so that people in the United States and Canada can watch too. Each presentation is shown twice throughout the day and we have a live Q&A with each presenter, as well as two longer Q&A sessions throughout the day. See below for schedules in a variety of timezones.
