This video, available for purchase from Legacy Family Tree, although now somewhat dated, is still a useful and inexpensive introduction to Scottish research


Scotland has a wealth of records available to assist you in researching your Scottish ancestry. Scottish statutory records of births, marriages and deaths began in 1855 and are available online together with census returns from 1841 – 1911. Other online records include Old Parish Records of baptisms, marriages and burials, records from Catholic archives and Scottish wills and testaments. Join our webinar to find out about these records and strategies to help you use these and other useful sources effectively in your research. This class was presented to a live webinar (online seminar) audience on April 18, 2012. 1 hour 27 minutes, plus 4 pages of handouts.
