2015 Tour Dates Have Been Set

The spring genealogy research tour in Edinburgh has been scheduled for April 19 - 28, 2015. Please note that this tour will include the opportunity to take part in the annual Scottish Family History Societies Conference, being held in Stirling on April 25th.

This will lessen the time available to you to travel to the part of Scotland where your ancestors lived, so you may wish to stay in Scotland beyond the research tour in order to get to your ancestral home area. You will benefit more from this visit once you have completed your research, so plan to stay longer rather than arrive earlier.

Conference fees will be covered in the Tour fees, but transportation to Stirling will be an additional, nominal charge, payable on the day.

The 2015 tour is already booking up and space is limited in order to maximize the research experience. If you would like to join us in Edinburgh to research your family history onsite, and gain access to records not available online, visit the website at: https://www.genealogytoursofscotland.ca/Tour_dates_and_Pricing.html
to reserve your place on the tour.

Second Tour Added for 2014

A second genealogy research tour has been added for 2014 for those who don't wish to wait until the spring.

The dates are of the tour are December 1 - 10. If you arrive a couple of days early, you can take in St Andrew's Day festivities. By this time, Princes St Gardens will also have been transformed into a Winter Wonderland complete with a skating rink and carousel. And St. Andrews Square will also take centre stage with a carousel and ferris wheel.

All of the main tourist attractions are open year round, with altered opening hours from the summer months, so you can still take in the museums and historical sites that you have been wanting to see.

The format of the tour itinerary will remain the same, including time to travel to the area of Scotland where your ancestors lived, or to take in the sights, sounds and festivities of Edinburgh in all of its Christmas splendor.
