BOOK - Lowlands of Scotland, Sourcebook for Family Researchers
By Sher Letooze
Lynn Michael-John Associates, Bowmanville, 2012

Whoever your ancestors were, where ever they lived in the Scottish Lowlands or Borders, their life was a hard one, but documentation for much of it can be located in the old records. One archive listed in this book boasts of 800 years of history on their shelves.

This helpful sourcebook focuses on the following Scottish counties:
    Ayrshire; Berwickshire; Clackmananshire; Dumfriesshire; East Lothian; Fifeshire; Kinross-shire; Kircudbrightshire; Lanarkshire; Mid Lothian; Peedlesshire; Renfrewshire; Roxburghshire; Selkirkshire; West Lothian; Wigtown.
The book is organized alphabetically by county/shire name. Each county/shire section begins with a map of the county with each of the parish boundaries marked and identified. Then:
  • A list of the towns and villages in each parish
  • Details on the archives, libraries and museums of that county
  • Family history/genealogical societes in that county
  • Internet resources [links] to information and online databases for the county
For each entry there are at least three pieces of information provided:
  • Postal address
  • eMail address for queries
  • Website link to access data from online databases
  • Comments on institutions and their collections for most but not all
This book will save you much time and effort insofar as it identifies the most useful and reliable sources to guide you on your quest to find and document your Scottish Lowlands ancestors.
