Join internationally renowned genealogist Paul Milner for the Heinz History Center’s first Scottish Genealogy Workshop.
Benefitting beginners and seasoned genealogists alike, this in-depth, hands-on workshop will examine a multitude of historic records and electronic resources that will advance your Scottish genealogy research.
This workshop will explore how to best use civil registration records, censuses, church records, maps, gazetteers, as well as land and probate records to uncover your Scottish ancestors.
Workshop presentations include:
- Scottish Emigration to North America: Before, During and After the Rebellions
- Finding Your Scottish Ancestors: The Big Five
- Finding the Correct Place: Maps and Gazetteers for Scottish Research
- Overlooked Sources for 17th and 18th century Scottish Research
A speaker from the Presbyterian Historical Society in Philadelphia, Pa. will also provide an overview of church records in its holdings that document Scottish Americans in Western Pennsylvania.
Representatives from the History Center’s Detre Library & Archives, the St. Andrew’s Society of Pittsburgh, as well as other local genealogical and heritage organizations will also be on hand to share insights and best practices with workshop attendees.
Participants will also have the opportunity to attend a special curator-led tour of the History Center’s Scottish American Collection on display within the museum’s fourth floor Special Collections Gallery.
This workshop is offered in partnership with the St. Andrew’s Society of Pittsburgh.
