Format: Hardcover
I bought his book after meeting the author who was just as helpful as this book is. Bruce Durie goes through loads of different areas for the novice to the advanced genealogist in a simple easy to read format. The best thing is that the book has countless web addresses, NAS references, other publication references and clear diagrams backing up what is written in the text.
I would definitely recommend buying this book. It has really helped me in my research to understand what is beyond just the basic census and BMD records.
I would go so far as to say that it is the best Scottish Genealogy book I have come across.

Format: Paperback
This is a really helpful book for those who want to learn more about how to go about tracing their Scottish Roots. A lot of genealogy books are quite dry but Bruce has a great sense of humour and this comes through in his book.

I went to a course at Strathclyde University, Glasgow on Genealogy, and was hooked ever since in my family history. Why, because Dr Bruce Drurie made it so easy for beginners, also this book is an up to date extension of him and comes with amazing ways to find your family.. I am at 1780 thanks to this book.

If you look up his name you will see he is an EXPERT in Genealogy and the world call on him to find their families etc.

Easy reading as Dr Bruce Drurie knows how to relate to beginners who become experts like I intend to.

Format: Hardcover
This book is one of the best treatise on Scottish Genealogy. Not only is it comprehensive but is as up-to-date as any that I have come across. The subject matter covers almost anything that the beginner or the experienced family history enthusiast would require.
The only subject that I have found missing is in the Trades, Craft, Professions and Offices section where there is no mention of the City Guilds, Crafts and Trades, of the major Scottish Cities, perhaps Professor Durie could cover this in his next edition.

Scottish Genealogy was hard reading and I lost interest because of pressure of work. I hope to pick it up later.
