Schedule for the Scottish ViC January 25th 2020


All of the presentations for the Scottish ViC have now been recorded and I am thrilled with the level of learning that is being offered again this year. The Scottish ViC is unique in that it is the only virtual learning opportunity dedicated to Scottish genealogy/history. 

The day begins at 8 am with the first presentation at 8:30. We break at 12:30 for lunch and the day wraps up at 5 pm. Following the conclusion of each presentation, the presenter will be available live in a closed Facebook group to answer questions. 

Based on past experiences, it is a fast paced, information packed day. While it sounds like an eternity in front of a computer, you will actually wonder how the time passed so quickly. The day is always an inspiration to kick start those who have not researched in a while. It provides new and renewed energy for those who are "stuck" or stagnant in their Scottish research. And it is a fantastic way to start a new genealogical year. 

Here's the line up for the day: 


8:30        HISTORIAN STEPHEN MULLENS: GLASGOW AND THE SLAVE TRADE
                               
9:45        ARCHIVIST IRENE O’BRIEN: DEATH AND BURIAL
                               
10:50     AOIFE O’CONNOR: BRITISH NEWSPAPER ARCHIVES
                               
11:45     GENEALOGIST EMMA MAXWELL: ASYLUM RECORDS
                               
12:30-1:15          
                               
1:15        ARCHIVIST MARGARET FOX: WILLS AND TESTAMENTS
                               
2:50       GENEALOGIST EMMA MAXWELL: PRISON RECORDS
                               
3:40        CHRISITNE WOODCOCK CANADA: LAND & OPPORTUNITY

5:00      WRAP UP
