Summer Institute of Genealogical Studies

One of the best and most popular ways to learn about genealogy is through Institutes. Those in North America will be very familiar with value of genealogy Institutes. A full week of intense learning by specialists in the field. And a side order of great networking with others researching in the areas you are interested in.

The University of Strathclyde, the Scottish University that started the post graduate degree in Scottish genealogy, is hosting its second annual Summer Institute from June 27 - July 1, 2016.

The topics and instructors for this year are:


  • British Military Research with Simon Fowler
  • Irish Resources and Research Techniques with William Roulston and Gillian Hunter of the Ulster Historical Foundation
  • Practical Applications of Genetic Genealogy with Alasdair Macdonald, Debbie Kennet and John Cleary


Each course runs for the full five days, however, you can mix and match if you are struggling with narrowing down choices.
