Genealogy in Scotland for Visitors

Many visitors interested in genealogy in Scotland come here from all over the world hoping to trace their Scottish ancestors. The mistake made by most is not doing the groundwork on Scottish roots before leaving home!

The first lesson in genealogy is to begin with yourself and your spouse, your parents and your spouse’s parents. Speak to them and write down everything they know about the family history. Make sure you ask for:

Full names (including middle names)
Dates and places of births, marriages and deaths
Occupations, including military service
All relevant addresses
