Lesser Known Databases for Scottish Genealogy Research Talk

I will be at the Halton-Peel branch of the OGS on Sunday, September 27th at 2pm. I will be speaking on: 

Lesser Known Databases for Scottish Genealogy Research
Beginner/Intermediate Level

Description: There comes a time when you have done all of the online researching you can do using the standard databases. In this workshop you will learn of lesser known databases to assist in breaking through your brick walls. These include:

  • FindMyPast
  • Deceased Online
  • British Newspaper Archives
  • Emigration Databases
  • Military Databases
  • Poor Law Records
  • Medieval Ancestry
  • Local, Offline resources

Abstract: Scotland is a world leader when it comes to preserving their national history and national memory. Archivists all over the country are working to conserve, preserve, digitize and make available records that can be used for genealogical research. This lecture will assist you in learning where you might find information on your Scots ancestor that will help you to fill in their story and add to your understanding of their social history.

The meeting takes place at the Oakville Public Library 1415 Third Line in Oakville.

Hope to see you there!
