    Always so many resources and lots of information.

    Always thorough and clear.

    another excellent webinar, a lot of interesting points.

    AWESOME webinar! So much valuable knowledge. Love his accent! Love his sense of humor! This is so helpful! 18-20-ish % Scottish with Irish here. One surname is McBridge. Thanks to all.

    Best series ever!

    Bruce is a great resource. Very informative and useful.

    Bruce’s webinars are some of the best.

    Could listen to Bruce all day! Wonderful material,logically presented (with humor),and LOVE his accent.

    Dr. Durie has a wonderful way of simplifying the topic without talking down to people. I found so much guidance in so little time. Thank you.

    Enjoyable, understandable and informative.


    excellent resources!



    Excellent. Looking forward to finding the place the Meek/Meeks family lived prior to 1777 in Scotland.

    Exceptional presenter

    Fabulous Webinar with Dr. Bruce Durie

    Fantastic webinar with lots of very useful tips and resources.

    Great to find on line sites I did not know existed

    Great! I am researching both lines for my husband, his parents are both Scottish and German. Learning a lot! Thanks 🙂

    I was called away by an important long distance call so I missed almost all of it. Will have to view it later

    Inspiring, lots of ideas to further research, which I’d never know about!

    it is interesting to find so many free sites to get started with in Scottish research. Thanks Bruce and also to you Geoff for organizing all of these webinars. This is awesome!

    It’s my first one, and I found it understandable, enjoyable, and useful.

    Lots of great info!

    One of the best webinars you have had! Bruce is so interesting and fun to talk to. I felt I was there in person and he was talking directly to me. Thank you!

    Scotland is soooo difficult. My ancestors were ones who seem to have bounced between there and Ireland, making it difficult to track them down.

    Since my Scottish Ancestry is prior to the American Revolution, I have never attempted to search records in Scotland. Now I know how to get started.

    So much great info about searching in Scotland!

    The best ever! The entire series by this presenter is just wonderful!

    Very interesting – lots of helpful information – thank you

    Very interesting and informative.

    Very motivating. Being from Brittany, in France, It gives me a lot of clues to search for my Scottish ancestors. Thanks to Dr. Bruce Durie!

    Very nice

    wonderful links

    Wonderful series on Scotland! Thanks so much to Bruce, Geoff, Marian & Legacy for providing these. I’ve done some Scottish research, but am realizing there’s so much more I could do!

    Wonderful set of resources, just what I needed! Thanks!

    Wonderful speaker, so much great information – Thank you!
