Scottish Genealogy Society workshops

From the Scottish Genealogy Society (

Family History Classes

Following on the success of our Taster Sessions, the Society has put together a programme of workshops to assist members/non-members to delve deeper into their Scottish family history. Apart from the Beginners classes, these modules go beyond the usual birth, marriage and death information. The classes will be held, mostly on a monthly basis, at our Family History Centre at 15 Victoria Terrace and will cost £10 each. The schedule is as follows (all dates are Saturdays from 10am-12pm):

6 October
Beginners: This module is just what it says - for beginners. Ken Nisbet, who has many years of experience in researching family history will take this class.

3 November
Maritime: John Stevenson, our resident expert on all things maritime, can help if you have a query on anything regarding the Royal or Merchant Navy.

1 December
Emigrants: With so many ancestors emigrating to the far flung corners of the British Commonwealth and beyond, this is an important part of Scottish family history. Ken Nisbet can help you find the best sources of information to help you trace their whereabouts.

Other classes are planned for next year but have still to be confirmed. For further information or to book a class, please call 0131 220 3677 or e-mail:

(With thanks to Ken Nisbet)
