Scottish genealogy webinar on records of ancestral crisis

On Saturday, 12 December 2015, from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM EST in Canada (about 6.00pm-7.30pm UK), I will be giving an online webinar entitled Down and Out in Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Interest Group of the Ontario Genealogical Society, as part of its series of Scottish Genealogy Saturdays presentations. This will be a 90 minute session in which I will explore the contemporary Scottish landscape in times of ancestral crisis and examine many of the types of records to be found - whether it be in trouble with the church or the state, in times of rebellions or struggles for rights, or battles with poverty and debt.

To participate in the event you will need to register at - the fee is CAN $14.95, with an additional small booking fee of CAN $1.36 (so in total we're talking about £8 Sterling).

Profits from the event go to the Scottish SIG's Symposium Fund - for further details please visit

I'm looking forward to donning a microphone and headphones and crossing continents online!
