Scotland’s history is that of its people. Whether your ancestors lived in a cottage or a castle; whether they worked a plough, dug coal from the ground or healed the sick – their stories are part of this country’s rich heritage. Many left Scotland to work in England, or to travel overseas to start new lives thousands of miles from their birthplace. But their Scottish roots can still be found – the people and the land that made them are waiting to be discovered.
Heritage Genealogy can help make that happen
Heritage Genealogy is run by professional genealogist and family historian Elizabeth Irving. Located within easy reach of archives, libraries and other document repositories throughout central and southern Scotland, we can trace your ancestors in the numerous statutory and unofficial records which they left behind. Using birth, marriage and death records, Old Parish registers, censuses, wills, court and poor law records, school registers, property and land records, voters’ rolls, old newspapers and many other resources, we can turn a long-forgotten person or a name on a tattered certificate into a vital piece of your family’s history.
