In preparation for the research, I have made my lists and now it’s a matter of checking them twice to make sure I get the most out of my time at the repositories. For the most part, I have the BMDs and census records. My lists are a bit different this time. Records that will help to re-build the story of my ancestors and less about the dates and places that the BMDs, OPRs and Census records provide. This time I am in search of rounding out some of the stories and of gathering records from some of the more obscure archives.
I want to spend some time trolling the Kirk Session records and the OPRs of course. But I also want to get into the Nursing Archives in
Edinburgh, and to the Archives at the for the NHS records. Getting these records will provide some of the missing gaps of the social history parts of my family history. University of Glasgow
I am looking forward to spending time with my older aunties and getting their perspective and recollection of the stories that have been passed down over the generations.
And I'm looking forward to sharing my research with you while I am in
. Stay tuned to this blog..... Scotland
