Routes to Your North-East Roots event in Stonehaven

This coming Saturday I will be giving a talk at the Routes to Your North-East Roots event in Stonehaven:

Routes to your North East Roots - Stonehaven Town Hall, Saturday 26th September 2015

We hope you're all looking forward to the Routes to your North East Roots event at Stonehaven Town Hall on Saturday! The event will be taking place between 10.30am and 4.30pm, so there's plenty of opportunity to stop by and visit.

With a great line up of exhibitors, including Kincardineshire Ancestors, the National Records of Scotland, Stonehaven Heritage Society and many more, there will be plenty of people on hand to answer your questions. From an interest in family history, to wondering what the history of a building may have been, you're sure to find some useful information.

There's also an excellent programme of talks taking place throughout the day on a variety of subjects including Scotland's People and heraldry. The full timetable can be found here.

COMMENT: My talk at 2.30pm is Discover Scottish Church Records. In addition to describing how to find the records, the talk also focusses heavily on the history of the Kirk from 1560-1855. If you can't find a record on ScotlandsPeople in that period, this talk will most definitely help provide a few clues as to why that might be!
