The theme for this conference was Emigration from Scotland. We heard from those who emigrated, in their own words, through the work that Dr Marjory Harper has undertaken. Her new audio book will give you a deeper glimpse into what we heard today.
Then we learned about the Highland and Island Emigration Database available online via the NRS for those whose highland ancestors went to Australia. You can learn more about those records here:
