WebinarlogoGot Scottish ancestors? Join our free webinar on Wednesday, April 18, presented by Marie Dougan, to learn how to find them.

Scotland has a wealth of records available to assist you in researching your Scottish ancestry.

Other online records include Old Parish Records of baptisms, marriages and burials, records from Catholic archives and Scottish wills and testaments. Join our webinar to find out about these records and strategies to help you use these and other useful sources effectively in your research.

The live webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 2PM Eastern U.S., so register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day. Join at least 15-20 minutes early to ensure your virtual seat.
