Scottish High Court records are packed with genealogical gems, as Emma Maxwell will explain in this exclusive presentation.
We may often think of these in terms of the perpetrator of a crime but what about the victims and witnesses? Should we be thinking more about the innocent people connected with a case, delving into their past and discovering their story?
* How did the involvement in a High Court case affect them?
* What clues should we be looking out for while we are researching?
In this illustrated presentation, Emma Maxwell, genealogist at scottishindexes.com will delve into a case from the 1870s.
An explosion in Glasgow touched the lives of many people; were your ancestors involved? Did they witness the accident? Emma will show you how to discover your ancestors’ stories; finding all the pieces of the jigsaw.
The 45-minute talk will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A, chaired by Chris Paton. The event will be recorded and the recording made available to ticket holders until 30 March.
