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!
A new website has launched today which may be of help to those with ancestry from the north east of Scotland. Routes to your North East Roots (www.northeastscotlandroots.com) essentially acts as a gateway to resources for the region, describing itself as 'the online presence of the Aberdeen and North East Scotland Ancestral Resources Partnership, an affiliation of regional archives, registrars, family history societies and other organisations that hold and promote genealogical resources to visitors both at home and abroad'.
Some case studies are also presented, an online gallery and some handy links to other useful resources.
