Kirsty Wilkinson, Professional Genealogist and author of “Finding Your Scottish Ancestors: Techniques for Solving Genealogy Problems” will deliver an interesting talk, “Sources in Scotland for Tracing Scottish Emigrants”. The presentation “DNA Testing for Family History” is eagerly anticipated and will be delivered by DNA Detective Michelle Leonard.
We’re also pleased to announce that George MacKenzie, a former Keeper of the Records of Scotland, will be joining us to deliver a presentation with the intriguing theme, “...bread & cheese & kisses is not enough…”
