Family Stories and Old Photographs Posted by Maureen

Don't you love a good story? I do. As genealogists we're trained to listen to the tales told at family gatherings and sort fiction from fact. Pictures not only come with their own set of stories linked to the image but they can be used as proof of a genealogical event.

Findmypast has added some 1.2million Scottish Roman Catholic church records to its database. Given the historical ties between Ireland and Scotland, not to mention the physical proximity of the two countries, this collection should be checked out by Irish family historians.

This release is the first tranche of FindMyPast's Scottish Catholic collection. It includes baptism, marriage, burial and congregational records from all eight of Scotland's Roman Catholic Dioceses: St Andrews & Edinburgh; Aberdeen; Argyll & the Isles; Dunkeld; Galloway; Glasgow; Motherwell; and Paisley.

Ancestry's Library Edition is no longer available in Northern Ireland's public libraries.Family historians in Northern Ireland who have been accustomed to using Ancestry's database at their local library are going to be in for a shock when they drop in for their next research session.
