PROFESSIONAL FAMILY HISTORY RESEARCH & Genealogical Problem Solving Service
If you are planning to visit
Acting in a consultancy role, with our local knowledge and genealogical expertise we can help you to devise a realistic schedule to achieve a variety of goals upon your visit to
v Trace the locations and buildings where your ancestors once lived
v Visit local museums to gain an understanding of their society in their time period
v Explore the main archives to view original documents relevant to your family
v Track down the graves of those who came before you
Inevitably, the more you wish to achieve on your visit, the more you would be advised to prepare in advance to help everything pass smoothly. When will the archives be open? How do I get permission from a current owner to visit a property? Which museums will tell me what I need to know about my ancestors’ social background? Where can I watch a 19th century handloom being operated? And if I am to walk over wet fields in the Scottish mist to find my great great grandfather’s ruined croft building, just where will I get a decent pair of wellies to keep my feet dry?!!!
Scotland’s Greatest Story can fully research all of your required options prior to your visit, and can accompany you on whichever aspects of your trip that you would wish us to.
