Review

Packed with hints and ideas for all interested in Scottish family history. The book is an excellent guide for beginners with hints on how to get the best of information that relatives can supply, how to choose a computer programme and where to find useful records. For the more experienced genealogist there are sections on records that may be found about specific occupations, or subjects e.g non-conformist records. There is a good chapter to how to present your family history ! This is one book that would be a useful additon to any family historian's bookshelf. -- Coontin Kin, Shetland Family History Society This book has a wealth of advice about traditional and non traditional sources ! I liked the down to earth, simple explanations ! you will also find a wealth of good topics to explore such as valuation rolls, poor law records, educational sources and occupational records among others. There is an excellent list of useful contact names and addresses. -- Glasgow & West of Scotland Family History Society This book is particularly welcome because many of the general guides to genealogy are written with English and Welsh family history in mind! Scotland is another country, with its own history, law and customs, with which researchers, to be successful, need to become familiar.

I have just recently started to research my ancestry and I have used this book as a reference. (I have also read it all the way through.) But I am sure that I will continue to use it as a reference.
