Join Marie Hickey for a look at some of the resources you can use to trace your Scottish family history.

This will be a brief look at some of the many differing types of records that can be found in Scottish county record offices, local libraries, museums and other public institutions.

It is surprising what you may find among their records - it could be notes for a local court case, passenger lists, photographs, constable’s diaries, common land records, school records, estate or local business records, letters, and diaries. The variety is endless - what will you find in your county?
