Family History Monthly - Scottish special

The July issue of Family History Monthly (issue 184) is a Scottish special, so put on your kilt and whip out your caber! (I'm so sorry, I don't usually talk like that...)

In this month's issue Ian Maxwell provides a basic intro into how to trace your Scottish ancestors, Alistair Moffat pops up with an insight into the history of the clans (a good read - Alistair was once my boss from a three year stint I did at Scottish Television, and knows his stuff!), there's a Scottish research directory, top ten Scottish websites, editor Penny Law visits the Hawick Heritage Hub, whilst yours truly provides a Scottish themed Online section, with latest Scottish online developments and a guided step through the ScotlandsPlaces website.

For all you Sassenachs though, there's also a great deal of additional material. Shackelton's Antarctic Adventure is put under the spotlight, Bob Blatchford looks at the youth of today in comparison to a century ago, Dilip Sarkar goes in search of the Few, Keith Gregson examines what made our ancestors laugh, Nigel and Sue Wilkes look at the silk industry, Nicola Lisle tastes a bun from Bath, and Sharon Brookshaw looks at open air living history museums.

All the usual regular features, and there's five copies of my book Researching Scottish Family History up for grabs, as well as £100 worth of ScotlandsPeople vouchers in this month's competitions.

"Alba nam beanntan ard..." (going all Runrig like now!)
