    DescriptionScotland has possibly the most complete and best-kept set of records and other documents in the world. Given both this and the extraordinary worldwide Scottish diaspora (approximately 28 million people can claim Scottish ancestry), the lack of a thorough guide to Scottish genealogy is a significant gap. Bruce Durie's book bridges that gap with authority and provides a sense of the excitement of the historical chase. "Scottish Genealogy" not only covers sources and records (both physical and electronic), it is also firmly based on established genealogical practice, with worked examples which will enable family historians everywhere to exploit the rich resources in Scotland. The author disabuses the reader of the many canards which have accompanied the recent upsurge in interest in family history, notably that it's 'all on the internet,' that there is such a thing as a 'family coat of arms' and that everything written down must be true. He shows researchers how to get beyond the standard 'births, marriages and deaths and census' search and how to dig deeper into genealogy. Authoritative and entertaining, this is a reader-friendly reference and guide to genealogy and family history.
