Anthony Adolph - Tracing Your Scottish Family History (2nd Hand Hardback)
Immensely detailed and fully illustrated guide to genealogy in Scotland - a thorough guide to researching your Scottish family tree.
During the year of publication, Scots worldwide celebrated the Homecoming Year to mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns. Amidst this gaiety, many came to Scotland to reflect on their own family's journey, to personally examine Scotland's past and research their family tree.
Tracing Your Scottish Family History guides the reader step by step, from "ask your family first" to finding, accessing and understanding obscure local records. Anthony Adolph shares insider tips on how best to search archives, libraries, publications, registers, censuses, tax rolls, debt records, churches, testaments and deeds, and he supplies all relevant contact information. Fortunately the Internet, digitised archives and DNA sampling have made it easier than ever to reconstruct a family tree.
This book's abundant archival photographs and illustrations and Adolph's engaging text describe Scottish society in detail, from the early seanachaidh (druids) and chieftains to Viking genetics. Adolph explains how critical historical events affected how and where Scottish people lived, and he gives comprehensive detail on such important topics as naming patterns, clans and tartans, heraldry, parishes, landholders and tacksmen, the Burghs, sasines, farmers and crofters, and Highland and Lowland families.
Tracing Your Scottish Family History is a comprehensive research tool and easy-to-use guide that gives an authentic historical perspective of Scotland and the lives of its people - a core reference for researching a Scottish family tree.
