  Anglo-Scots Branch Meeting

Anglo Scots Branch Meeting.

Down and Out in Scotland.

Chris Paton

'It is often the case in family history research that our ancestors' lives were best documented

when the chips were truly down. We may have had ancestors in poverty or debt, with mental issues

or illnesses, who were assaulted, murdered, raped, who committed suicide, engaged in insurgency, or who

were punished by the state or the Kirk. No matter the crisis, a quill and ink were always in close proximity.

 

In this talk Chris Paton explores some of the areas of ancestral hardship, to allow us to truly understand

the situations that our forebears had to endure and overcome'.

 

This meeting will be held at Central Library in Meeting room 1
