Big thanks to Karen Foy

So here I am, reviewing Karen Foy's new book Family History for Beginners for Discover my Past England magazine, when suddenly my name pops up on page 123!

Ahem, and I quote...!

"I’ve just discovered Scottish forebears in my tree. Is there a book you would recommend which would give me a good overview of this area of research?

"For an easy-to-follow guide which is packed with good advice then Chris Paton’s Researching Scottish Family History is a great place to start. At 120 pages long it offers a relaxed approach to the subject and points you in the right direction to get the most out of the archives, records and resources available."


Now clearly, clearly, I am not at all going to be influenced with such a blatant attempt to win my support, no sirree, not this soldier, this wee shuggie will remain editorially independent, incorruptible, and dedicated to the task at hand. For we British - nay, those of us with Scottish blood in our veins, and the fire of Ulster in our souls - are so much more than that, and would never, NEVER, stoop so low.

However...

BUY KAREN'S BOOK - IT'S GREAT!!!

Actually - it is very good! See www.thehistorypress.co.uk/products/Beginning-Family-History54.aspx - £13.49
