You are worth your weight in Laphroaig and dark chocolate!!  I can't believe you found those baptisms - I really wasn't holding out much hope. Thank you once again - I haven't stopped smiling yet. My husband says he will toast you tonight with a large dram of 10 year Laphroaig (duty free)!

I was immediately impressed with your accessability, and your prompt and detailed responses to my questions.  Within an hour or two of each message sent off, you would respond with helpful information, and I really enjoyed reading the information you unearthed for me.

Thanks for everything so far.  I've enjoyed hearing from you.  Your reports are intelligent and informative – a rare combination today when most people seem to have forgotten how to write!

The package arrived on Christmas Eve and was a great hit with my nephews who are interested in their forbears. They were fascinated when I handed them the folder and said, “this is your family tree on your Playfair side, and you're in it!”  Two hours later and all I'd heard was “look, we were here, and we were there, and I didn't know....?!” – it was great!

A wonderful research team, leaving no stone unturned.  I recommend them highly to anyone who is looking for family in Scotland.  Some things have been answered and as in Genealogy, some new questions have arisen. It's what makes this adventure so much fun.

Additional Services

Scotland's Greatest Story can photograph or video record any location you wish that may connect to your family history, subject to the obtaining of any necessary permissions from the relevant landowners beforehand. 
Photographs can either be taken digitally or on film, subject to your preferences and requirements;  video recordings can be made on Mini DV format and transferred to DVD in either PAL or NTSC formats 

Graveyards can provide a wealth of genealogical information, and we are happy to travel to any mainland Scottish kirkyard to carry out research and/or to photograph headstones.  

Scotland's Greatest Story is happy to carry out English and Irish research on your behalf. The methodology for this is very different to that for Scottish research, requiring the ordering of various certificates by post, and will hence take much longer to research, but it can be done.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
