    Great Scottish webinar! It’s sometimes hard, in genealogy research, to slow down, and discipline yourself to verify the next step is correct, before moving forward. I appreciate the guidance to not get ahead of ourselves, in travel or searching online, to find the right sources, and only then excitedly dive in. Thanks again for a wonderful presentation!

    Interesting to me as my DNA suggests I have many Scottish, but was complicated enough so that I would have to review the session.

    This session was way above my “pay grade” 🙂 I have not begun my Scotland research yet but it gave me ideas of where to begin after I find my ancestors town locations. Thanks!
