New Scottish GENES carrier pigeon service!

In a bid to bring you all the latest news as quickly as possible, I'm delighted to announce the new Scottish GENES Carrier Pigeon Service (Scottish GENES CPS)! All the latest news on a wee bit of paper wrapped around the legs of pigeons, guaranteed to reach you within hours! Once read, return the pigeon or make a pie! If successful, I'm also hoping to launch the new Scottish GENES Oh-Yez Town Crier Corps (Scottish GENES OYTCC)...

OK, technically speaking, the above is all a bit of a fib. But there are many ways to stay on top of all the latest news and events from Scotland as recorded on this blog. You can subscribe to the blog in a daily feed by using the email and RSS feed sign ups in the right hand column of this page. If you prefer Facebook, the Scottish GENES page is located at, whilst links to all stories are posted online at Twitter also on my page @chrismpaton (!/ChrisMPaton).

Recently I also started a new daily summary of additonal news via my Twitter based British GENES Daily - this is a daily newspaper automatically created every night just after 8pm from genealogical stories linked to on friends' twitter posts - it mainly has a British slant, though often with stories from further afield. Try it out for free at

Doing my best to keep you on top of developments in a fast changing world! :)
