The Scottish Genealogy Society will be holding a special family history conference to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Society. The theme of the Conference will be “Scots on the move - tracing records of our Scottish ancestors who emigrated”.

The all-day Conference will be held at the Augustine United Church on George IV Bridge, Edinburgh and will feature talks by Ken Nisbet on Australasia, Chris Paton on Ireland, Eric Graham on Crossing the Atlantic before steam and Naomi Tarrant on English records. Delegates will also have an opportunity to consult specialists on other aspects of family history - such as military and maritime records, OPRs, censuses, land records, European sources etc.

The cost of the Conference will be £15 per delegate. Book early to avoid disappointment.
