Pre-order Finding Your Scottish Ancestors by Kirsty Wilkinson

A quick plug for a pal with a new book on the way!

Finding Your Scottish Ancestors: Techniques for Solving Genealogy Problems
Kirsty F Wilkinson
(Robert Hale Ltd, to be published 27 Jan. 2020)

Tracing family history has become increasingly popular over the last few decades and the availability of many records online means that those fortunate enough to have Scottish ancestors can easily access many of the sources they need to build their family tree. However, as research progresses, most family historians will eventually hit the dreaded 'brick wall' and find themselves unable to proceed further.

This book provides a wealth of information, advice and techniques to help solve these genealogy problems and gives family historians the tools they need to track down even the most elusive forebears. Contents include: sources for Scottish family history research, both traditional archives and online resources; techniques for searching and interpreting genealogical records; planning and recording research and, finally, common genealogy problems and their solutions.

The book is available to pre-order in the UK at www.amazon.co.uk/Finding-Your-Scottish-Ancestors-Techniques/dp/0719830532/

COMMENT: Kirsty is an expert genealogist based in Edinburgh who absolutely knows her stuff - I'm very much looking forward to seeing this when it comes out next month!
