Family History Research

About 30 years ago my wife and I spend a full day in Register House in Edinburgh and traced all our ancestral lines back to people born in the 18thC. I have also been told we were lucky!

The Internet now provides a valuable source of information on what you need to do and where to look. My wife and I have now pushed our family trees much further back and have 100s of names on them. Try starting at ScotsMart Web Directory. Good resources are Scotland's People and FamilySearch.org.

Our sister site gives further historical information about Perthshire Clans and their Castles.

To carry out family history research properly you need someone to 'do some leg work'. You should try this yourself but often you need to turn to professional help. Think carefully before simply writing off or sending an email to someone other than a professional and asking them to do your 'leg work'. Family Roots research can involve a lot of effort.
