We have had two really productive days at the ScotlandsPeople Centre. In addition to the Old Parish Registers (OPRs), Statutory Records (BMD) and Census Records, tour participants were able to view Kirk Session records and to pull books that are held in the library of the ScotlandsPeople Centre.
Gaps were filled in, myths dispelled, questions answered and new information discovered. The best part for most participants was getting confirmation of the research that they had started in North America.
Participants were also able to do research in the Historical Reading Room at the NRS and this was where many of the stories were fleshed out.
We are looking forward to the rest of the week and the information we are able to uncover as we continue our Genealogy Research Tour in Scotland.
