Tracing Your Scottish Ancestors

Tracing Your Scottish Ancestors: The... Official Guide
Scottish Record Office, National Archives Of Scotland. This guide provides an authoritative survey of the vast range of material held in the Scottish Record Office, records of Scottish national and local government, Scottish churches, law courts and private families and businesses. Written in an accessible style from the unique perspective of a custodian of the records, it not only explains step by step how to research records of births, marriages and wills, but also directs the reader to a variety of other, less well-known sources containing valuable genealogical information. Fully revised and updated, and containing a new chapter on the General Register Office for Scotland, this is the essential reference tool for anyone tracing Scottish ancestors.

Who Do You Think You Are

Who Do You Think You Are? this book is a jargon-free idiot's guide to tracing your family history. Light in tone, sometimes funny, often moving, and aimed at absolutely everyone, the book combines both stats and pub facts, with very real emotions as people discover the heroes and villains in their family's past. Rather than a dry 'how to' guide though, this book is inclusive, non-patronising and lively, and emphasises the human and emotional side to this popular pastime. Each of us are a part of history. And each of us has a story that in microcosm creates the epic ebbs and flows of British history. Like the TV series, the book will enthuse and inspire the reader to join in the process that enables us to say as individuals who we think we are, and as a nation, what makes our country what it is. This basic essential information is brought to life by pull-out boxes on our favourite celebrities as they trace their family trees back over the last couple of hundred years - such as Meera Syal's story: 'From Dudley to Delhi'. Within the text are pull-out 'Did you know?' facts on everything from the pasts of well-known celebrities to our make-up as a nation.
