Family History

Scottish family history societies (FHS), especially the larger societies, have quite amazing range of resources available.  It is well worth spending a few pounds on a subscription to one or more of these FHSs, or at very least visiting their web-sites, if only to learn what resources they can offer for your particular areas of interest.

Those comments are not in any way meant to detract from what the smaller, more locally based FHSs can offer, - quite often they can offer access to a resource that is relatively insignificant on a national or area basis, but extremely significant if it matches your specific area of local interest.
