Glasgow Research Tour Itinerary

The itinerary for the 2019 Glasgow tour is now confirmed.

Thursday May 16: We will meet in the hotel lobby for a meet and greet and to talk about the week ahead.

Friday, May 17: We will meet in the hotel lobby at 8:30 am to walk to the train station where we will head to Motherwell. Research opportunities will be available at both the North Lanarkshire Archives and the Lanarkshire Family History Society.

Saturday May 18: Those who are interested will meet in the hotel lobby at 12:45 to head to the Glasgow Women's Library. Here we will be given an overview of the library and a behind the scenes tour. Then we will head out on a guided tour of Glasgow's East End. This is one of the older parts of Glasgow and has a rich history. We will see the Templeton Carpet Factory, Glasgow Green, and will end at Abercrombie Cemetery, locally known as the Weaver's Cemetery.

Sunday May 19: For those who are interested, we will meet in the hotel lobby at 1:15 and head to the Glasgow Necropolis for a guided tour.

Monday May 20: Today’s research opportunity will be at the Glasgow and West of Scotland Family History Society. We have also been invited to join the GWSFHS for their evening meeting.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we will head to the Mitchell Library for full days of research at the Glasgow City Archives

The tour ends after breakfast on Friday morning. Some will head further afield, or stay a few days longer. Others will return home complete with certificates, stories, photos, a richer sense of themselves as part of the Scottish diaspora and with a keener sense of connection not only to their ancestors but also to their ancestral homeland.

Only ONE space remains!! If you are the first to book, it's YOURS!
