Planning is well along for our October conference. As well as featuring some of the amazing records here in Scotland, we will be taking a trip around the British Isles as our ancestors had a habit of moving around.
We will be welcoming back genealogist Chris Paton who will present ‘Tracing the Irish in Scotland’.
We are excited to introduce genealogist Eilir Daniels for the first time at the Scottish Indexes conferences. Eilir will present ‘Tracing Welsh Ancestry’.
We are also delighted to introduce Amelia Bennett, who will present, ‘Hidden in Plain Site’ - a journey through where to find genealogical records that are often not known about or forgotten in preference for the more commonly used websites.
Dr Louise Williams, archivist at Lothian Health Services Archive, will join us to share some of the gems from their archive. Lorna Steele will join us from the Highland Archive Service to share some of their amazing school records.
Chris Fleet will be joining us again from the National Library of Scotland. Their map collection is a priceless tool for genealogy research. Chis will help us get to grips with their website in his presentation ‘Using the NLS maps website for family history research’.
Genealogy Q & A hosted by Graham and Emma Maxwell.
More presenters will be announced in the coming weeks, so keep an eye on www.scottishindexes.com. We aim to publish the schedule by late September.
