Day Two - Research and R&R

Today we were at the National Library of Scotland. We started our time there with a very thorough overview of the sorts of records that contain genealogical information, given by Elaine Brown. In addition to sharing the resources available at the NLS, Elaine showed us how much information is available on the NLS website so that we can continue our research at home. 

This evening, the group enjoyed their time with the very talented Robert of Historic Edinburgh Tours who led them on a guided tour of Edinburgh's Victorian Slums. 

This is a particularly enlightening tour for those of us who are studying our family histories. And took a personal turn for those tour participants who have Edinburgh ancestors.
