An accessible, user-friendly handbook for all amateur genealogists seeking their Scottish roots.

With an emphasis firmly on the practical, this handy little book is designed to be used as a reference guide while actually working in record offices and other repositories of genealogical information. It provides detailed guidance on the variety of religious, governmental and other records available and is packed with hands-on advice on navigating the different types of records and on problem-solving when the trails run cold.

The book also features helpful information for those of Scottish descent living outside Scotland, particularly in North America and the Antipodes, who are beginning the search for their ancestors from their own country. It also includes advice on using the Internet for genealogy which is increasingly becoming a major tool for researchers.
