Scottish Institute 2015

SAVE THE DATE!

OCTOBER 18 - 25 2015

Announcing  a specialised learning and researching opportunity in 2015:
The Scottish Institute

This Institute is a small group experience, limited to 15 registrants. The Institute is for Professional and Semi-Professional genealogists who may or may not conduct research for clients with Scottish ancestry.

The week will offer speakers on several topics including:
  • The holdings of the GRO 
  • The holdings of the NAS 
  • Land Records
  • Palaeography
  • National Health archives
  • Highland Records and Resources
  • Maps, newspapers and other resources at the NLS
  • Court records
  • Ancestral tourism
  • Scottish Genealogy Network 

The week culminates with a joint Professional Development Day with members of the Scottish Genealogy Network. This day of workshops will be followed by social networking with our colleagues in Scotland which will provide you with the opportunity to make important connections on the ground in Scotland.

The week is well balanced with 20 hours of learning and 20 hours of research.
