Scottish Institute 2015: October 18 – 25

The Scottish Institute provides a unique learning opportunity for professional and semi–professional genealogists who may or may not conduct research for clients with Scottish Ancestry. It will be held in Edinburgh on October 18 through 25.

This Institute is a small group experience, limited to 15 registrants. The Institute is for Professional and Semi-Professional genealogists who may or may not conduct research for clients with Scottish ancestry.

The week will offer speakers on several topics including the holdings of the GRO, NAS (combined as the NRS), palaeography, National Health archives, maps, newspapers, the holdings of the NLS, court records and the efforts of the Maxwells at Scottish Indexes, ancestral tourism and the Scottish Genealogy Network. The full agenda may be found at http://www.scottishinstitute.ca/institute-schedule.html.

The week culminates with a joint Professional Development Day with members of the Scottish Genealogy Network, an informal network of Scottish Genealogists. This day of workshops will be followed by social networking with our colleagues in Scotland which will provide the Institute participants with the opportunity to make important connections on the ground in Scotland.

The week is well balanced with 20 hours of learning and 20 hours of research.
