My Ancestor was Scottish

By Alan Stewart

A comprehensive and indispensable guide to tracing Scottish ancestry, this book will help you get to grips with nuances of researching in Scotland, from civil registration and census returns, to parish registers and wills. Although the basic techniques of Scottish family history are the same as those for English and Welsh research there are also a number of differences, which this books examines. In addition to exploring Scottish maps and legal records, the author devotes chapters to Scottish clans, armed forces records and Scottish resources at the Society of Genealogists.
