There was great excitement this week when the National Records of Scotland released the 1921 census. This window into the past will be a starting point for many as they delve into their Scottish family history.

We’re delighted to announce that Tessa Spencer, Head of Outreach and Learning at the National Records of Scotland, will join us at our next conference on 14 January 2023 to present ‘Secrets of the 1921 Scottish Census’.

This is a free and time-zone-friendly event. We show all presentations between 7 am UK time and 3 pm UK time, then we start again and show all presentations again between 3 pm and 11 pm.
