Free Scottish emigration records on WorldVitalRecords

Apologies to one and all for the limited number of posts in recent days - I'm currently finishing off a university dissertation, so have been slightly busy!

By way of a humble offering to make up for it, here is a cracking freebie for those with Scots ancestry (OK, I would have announced it anyway!). WorldVitalRecords.com have two new Scottish databases - Scottish Highlanders on the Eve of the Great Migration, 1725 - 1775: The People of Inverness-shire and Scots-Scandinavian Links in Europe and America, 1550 - 1850 (click on the links to access). Both are free to access for the next ten days only, so if you have links with either, better get going quicky! After this time, they will be available by subscription.

The two collections are digitised from the books by well known Scottish genealogist, and expert on Scottish emigration, David Dobson.

Remember - ten days folks...!
