    This is my sixth purchase in the Tracing Your Ancestors series. They are magazine style with short sharp articles full of useful information that one can use immediately. This one contains everything one needs to understand and use the excellent sources of Scotland to find ancestors and understand their lives. Each article is clearly written and supported by URLs for more information. Apart from the usual references to Scotlands People and the National Library of Scotland, the author includes helpful sections on occupations, mental health, criminals and military ancestors. An excellent publication.
