Course Seven — Scottish Genealogical Research

Course Coordinator

Paul Milner, M.Div.

Description

This course will address migration from Scotland to North America and how settlement on this side of the Atlantic may provide clues to origins in Scotland. The course then takes an in depth exploration of the fundamental tools and records used in Scottish research, explaining the basics but progressing to more advanced techniques. The records will be put into historical context. The course concludes with exposure to lessor used records for specific time periods.
