Walk in Your Scottish Ancestors Footsteps
Visit Scotland estimates that there are around 40 million people across the globe who can claim Scottish Ancestry. Over the past three centuries scottish emigration led to large numbers leaving Scotland and travelling to the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and other parts of the world and in time contributing to these countries history.
The descendants of these Scots are increasingly celebrating their Scots heritage. Many visit Scotland to see for themselves where their ancestors came from. Whether their Scottish migration was part of the early expansion of North America, a victim of the Highland Clearances, or an economic migrant of the early twentieth century, we offer a tailored research service to tell the story of Scottish migration – “Your Scotland Story”.
If you are planning a visit to Scotland then plan ahead and ask us to research your family history. Whether your ancestors came from the Highlands or the Victorian slums of Glasgow we can let you know “Your Scotland Story” and where and what to visit so you can make the best use of your stay in our beautiful country. We will work with your tour operator or hotel to provide a fully integrated and planned service.
Using a range of sources and records, including newspapers, maps etc. we will build a picture of your ancestor’s life in Scotland and seek to trace evidence of their scottish migration. Before we begin any work we will discuss and agree the scope of the project and issue a quotation detailing the cost of the research. At the conclusion you will receive an Ancestral Research Report telling Your Scotland Story – the story of your ancestors life in Scotland, locations where they lived and worked and any evidence of their emigration to their new home.
