The Scottish GENES blog has now ceased publication - for continuing Scottish news please refer to its sister blog, British GENES, at http://britishgenes.blogspot.com. The Scottish GENES posts will remain online as an archive of Scottish genealogical news from 2007-2011. Alba - agus Scottish GENES - gu bràth!
Thanks to Shauna Hicks for flagging this up on Twitter:
The Genealogical Society of Victoria (www.gsv.org.au) is hosting the Third Australasian Genealogy Conference on a Scottish Theme. Catch the Moments - Scotland 1750-1850: A Century of Transformation is to be held on April 16th-17th 2011 at the Hemisphere Conference Centre, 488 South Road, Moorabbin, Melbourne, Victoria. There are several speakers, including top genie Sheena Tait, who many readers will know from several UK family history magazines, for which she is a regular contributor.
Also - coincidentally, tomorrow I'm teaching the last week of the current Scotland 1750-1850 Beyond the OPRs course for Pharos, but the course will run again from October 17th - for more information see www.pharostutors.com.
