Tracing family history has become increasingly popular over the last few decades and the availability of many records online means that those fortunate enough to have Scottish ancestors can easily access many of the sources they need to build their family tree. However, as research progresses, most family historians will eventually hit the dreaded 'brick wall' and find themselves unable to proceed further.

Finding Your Scottish Ancestors provides a wealth of information, advice and techniques to help solve these genealogy problems. Well-known in the Scottish genealogy field, Kirsty Wilkinson begins by describing the main records used to trace Scottish ancestry, some of which be unfamiliar to readers, as well as the repositories and websites where those records can be found.

Good research techniques, interpreting genealogical records, and some of the reasons difficulties may be experienced are all discussed in detail. Finally, the book offers a range of solutions to deal with some specific, commonly encountered family history problems, and advice on taking research further. 

Packed full of advice, based on years of practical experience, this guide will be invaluable to anyone who has found themselves stuck when tracing their Scottish family history and wondered where to turn next. From developing a research plan and identifying where records are held, to analysing evidence and using small clues to reconstruct lives and families, 'Finding Your Scottish Ancestors'gives family historians the tools they need to track down even the most elusive forebears.
