Apologies for the lack of posts the last few days. I've been back down to England for a few days because of a family illness which has taken a sudden turn for the worst.

My latest book, Discover Scottish Civil Registration Records, is now available from (print) and (ebook), whilst Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet is available at My next Pharos Scottish course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the OPRs, starts Nov 13th - see

  2. We'll miss your posts but family must take priority.
