Another Successful Genealogy Tour to Scotland Comes to an End

What a busy 10 days we have had! Although Friday was officially a "day off" from research, almost all of the participants did research. Some at ScotlandsPeople Centre, some in the Historical Reading Room upstairs (the National Archives). Others spent the day at the National Library of Scotland. Some in the Special Collections department, others pouring through the Manuscripts. 

Sunday, all of the research facilities were closed, forcing the participants to take a break and enjoy the beauty and history of this magnificent city. A day of R&R and sightseeing was much enjoyed and allowed people to re-charge their energies. 

In all, the participants have had six days of research as well as a day at the annual conference of the Scottish Association of Family History Societies. 

Eight participants have taken personalised ancestral tours with Ian Walker of Borders Journeys

Seven participants are staying for a week or two longer to enjoy some of the history and scenery beyond the Central Belt. And all of them are looking forward to their next trip to Scotland!
