As always we are going to be joined by some amazing genealogists and experienced archivists. Margaret Fox, archivist at Traquair House and formerly an archivist at the National Records of Scotland, will take an in-depth look at kirk session records and cases that worked their way up to the Synod.
Genealogist Michelle Leonard of Genes & Genealogy, co-author of ‘Tracing Your Ancestors Using DNA: A Guide for Family Historians’ (available here) will help us get to grips with DNA Painter.
Tessa Spencer will join us from the National Records of Scotland. Tessa will dip into the unique treasure trove of Scotland’s national archives. She will look at this diverse and rich material, explaining what the records are and how you can access and use them, whether researching online or visiting in person.
Audrey Collins, genealogy specialist at the National Archives, will share some insights on tracing pre-First World War military and naval ancestors.
