Format: Paperback
In his third edition of Scottish Genealogy, Professor Bruce Durie provides the most fantastic, readable, accessible, and fully comprehensive guide to help people research their family histories if they have Scottish ancestors. Thoroughly knowledgable, exceptionally well researched, with many helpful links and ideas, this is, without doubt, the definitive guide - if you only want ONE book to inform you how to trace your Scottish family history, then this has to be the ONE.

Only gave this an ok rating as its pretty heavy duty! This is more like a text book for somebody studying genealogy than a reference book for an amateur family historian. Thought this might take me to the 'next level' but its far too involved.

Bought this for my mum for christmas as she is studying genealogy and she has Scottish roots. Read reviews which helped my decision. My mum loved it and her tutor was impressed with the quality and content of this book.
