Research Day Four - National Library of Scotland

Today was spent at the National Library of Scotland.

Most of the morning was spent in a session learning about all that the NLS has to offer people who are researching their family history. Then after a quick tour, it was time to hit the collections. Newspapers were consulted, trades and city directories poured over, maps consulted and books perused. While not quite as productive a day from a research perspective, we have learned a great deal about what resources are available to family historians and we have a keener understanding of the lives and times in which our ancestors lived.

Looking forward to the SAFHS conference tomorrow in Galashiels.
