Family History Federations’ REALLY USEFUL Family History Show

I am pleased and honoured to be able to have a presentation included in the FHFRUFHS next week – November 17-18, 2023.

This year the show has many very interesting workshops on offer. Some lucky people who register early will get to participate with the facilitators. There will be expert panel “open to anyone who would like to discuss or receive advice on genealogical challenges by interacting with the experts.” The event will have an exhibition hall and, even if you cannot attend in person, you can always email the vendors.

There will be several other pre-recorded specialist talks. One of these will be mine. The timing of the presentation has yet to be confirmed.

I put together a summary of the information search, including all the twists and turns I encountered, for my wife’s great-grandmother, Elizabeth Couper (1833-1904). The exercise was a learning process about how and where to search for Scottish records. We learned important lessons about the accuracy of records as well as the veracity of those who provided information to complete those documents.
