The GENES Blog (GEnealogy News and EventS): Top stories concerning British Isles and diaspora ancestral research, from Irish born Scottish based professional family historian, author and tutor Chris Paton. Feel free to quote from this blog, but please credit The GENES Blog if you do so. To contact me please email chrismpaton @ outlook.com. Happy hunting!
The Facebook page for my Scotland's Greatest Story research service (www.scotlandsgreateststory.co.uk) has now been upgraded to the new Timeline look - this is a new look being forced by Facebook on its users by the end of this month, so I figured I would get ahead of the game.
As well as providing details of my research services, I am now adapting the page to be a new Scottish based genealogy platform, carrying British GENES blog posts of interest, as well as tips and other relevant offerings for those with Caledonian based research. To simplify things, I have now deleted my old Scottish GENES Facebook page which I have not been using since the end of last year, following the introduction of British GENES.
