 Scottish Research: “Interested in tracing your Scottish genealogy? The Scottish Indexes Conference is an opportunity to learn new research skills, discover diverse records and see how others have put these into practice. If you want to trace your Scottish family tree this is the event for you.”
Conferences are held four times each year. The next one (the 22nd) will be held Nov 25, 2023. It’s free, and offers multiple speakers and a Q&A session. Sessions are repeated to accommodate different time zones. You can watch all day, or just tune into certain sessions – they generally run on time so it’s easy to reconnect at any time. The website is: https://www.scottishindexes.com/.

Another virtual conference about Scotland will be offered by the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO) on Oct 28-29, 2023 : Leaving Their Scottish Homes: What Were They Thinking? The cost is $40 for non-members, and it has some well-known Scottish genealogists making presentations.

The program is at 5:00 PM (SK time) but it is suggested that people connect at 4:45.

The presenter, Eva Kujawa, will cover a historical overview of Eastern Europe, including various border changes. She will also cover various research resources, how to plan EE research, and the potential challenges and solutions for this type of genealogical research. Topics will include what is in a name, naming traditions, languages, and various handwriting styles, as well as the types of records that can be located. The presentation will include a list of websites and databases that hold a huge amount of information for this region. (Excerpt from a longer announcement.)
