9780806318738: Scottish Genealogy Research (Genealogy at a Glance)

Designed to cover the basic elements of genealogical research in just four pages, the Genealogy at a Glance series attempts to give you as much useful information in the space allotted as you ll ever need. In less than a handful of pages (specially laminated for heavy use) it provides an overview of the facts you need to know in order to begin and proceed successfully with your research, allowing you to grasp the basics of research at a glance.

In this instance the renowned Scottish author David Dobson brings his expertise to bear in a shrewd distillation of facts about Scottish genealogical research. Because there are so many people of Scottish descent worldwide, he uses emigration history as a jumping off point, from there proceeding to tackle the immense body of unique Scottish records which includes Old Parish Records of the Church of Scotland; post-1854 statutory records of births, marriages, and deaths; and census returns from 1841 to 1901.

Book Description Genealogical Pub Co, 2011. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Genealogy at a Glance. Designed to cover the basic elements of genealogical research in just four pages, the "Genealogy at a Glance" series attempts to give you as much useful information in the space allotted as you’ll ever need. In less than a handful of pages (specially laminated for heavy use) it provides an overview of the facts you need to know in order to begin and proceed successfully with your research, allowing you to grasp the basics of research at a glance.

Making clever use of the allotted space, Dobson then focuses on the remaining Scottish genealogical records, from traditional wills and testaments to the lesser known kirk session records and services of heirs. Along the way he seeds the text with research tips and references to key publications, concluding with an indispensable list of online resources, which are now the focal point of Scottish genealogy research.
