Product description

From the Back Cover

Scottish Roots
By Alwin James

"An accessible, clearly written guide for genealogy buffs."
-Booklist

"An interesting and welcome addition to Scottish research."
-Genealogical Library Journal

"For pure reading pleasure, I'd recommend this book to anyone with the vaguest interest in Scottish genealogy. . . . If you are or know a Scotsman who is just getting started with a Scottish family tree, it's a must."
-Branches and Twigs

A country rich with family history, Scotland as a nation respects and preserves her past by preserving and housing hundreds of years of personal records. This book tells you just how to tap into that fund of information and services to trace your Scottish forebears.
Author Alwyn James describes the wealth of information available and tells you where to access it and how to make full use of the records. He provides a hands-on example to demonstrate how two Scots, who could only give details as far back as their grandparents, were able to build up a substantial family tree and discover their ancestral past.
James is married to a lovely Scottish lass, whose ancestry encouraged him to find their Highland roots. An editor of the business and politics magazine Scotland for many years, James has always been fascinated by genealogy.
