Scottish Research Resources before 1800
In this talk Chris Paton, author of 'Tracing Your Scottish Ancestry Through Church and State Records', takes us to pre-19th century Scotland, when things begin to get a little more complicated with our ancestral research.

From Kirk to state, a variety of records are available, but it's one thing to find them, and quite another to understand them, with different handwriting styles, language problems and the feudal nature of Scottish society forming some of the many challenges that make earlier Scottish research fun but challenging.

Chris will explore the various record types available, and how to access them both online and offline.
