Scottish genealogy

£39.99

Product description

Scottish Genealogy is the comprehensive guide to tracing your family history in Scotland. Written by an authority on the subject and based on established genealogical practice, it is designed to exploit the rich resources that Scotland, the country with possibly the most complete and best-kept set of records and other documents in the world, has to offer. Using worked examples, and addressing the questions of DNA, palaeography and the vexed issues of Clans, Families and tartans, Bruce Durie covers both physical and electronic sources, and explains how to get beyond the standard births, marriages and deaths plus census' research, reminding the reader that there are more routes to follow than just the internet, and that not everything written down is correct! Comparisons are made with records in England, Ireland and elsewhere, and all of the 28 million people throughout the world who claim Scottish ancestry will find something in this book to help, challenge and stimulate. Informative and entertaining, this is the definitive reader-friendly guide to genealogy and family history in Scotland.

'An essential addition to the library of every serious family historian', Christ Paton, Ancestors.

Quality of book is good with a small date inscription in pen on inside cover.
