Chris Paton is a former BBC Scotland producer of history based programmes, and this new guide to researching family history in Scotland is an easy read and very user friendly.
Useful for beginners and more experienced researchers alike, it has a good “Knowing Where to Look” section covering the Scotlands People Centre in Edinburgh, Regional Archives, LDS centres, Family History Societies etc. It then covers all the various types of records peculiar to Scotland and where to find them.
There is also a section on Heraldry and Tartans and a very comprehensive appendix listing the postal addresses and web pages of archives and family history societies.
