Getting the Best Out of ScotlandsPeople a Pay-to-View Website $15.00
13FRC009 Saturday 22nd June, 10.00-1.30pm Classroom Workshop
Presenter Bobbie Amyes
This workshop will show you how to prepare to search for the information on the website so you don’t waste money. Some elementary knowledge of Scottish research is important as there will be no time to explain the records in depth, as the emphasis will be on be using the records. Bobbie's introductory course to Scottish research (11th May) could be a useful prerequisite for those new to the topic who want to know more about the records. Scotland's People is constantly expanding its record collection, so we will be covering the following records: Birth, Death, Marriage, Old Parish Registers, Catholic Registers, Census Records, Valuations and Wills and Testaments. Recently the wills and testaments section has expanded further into 20th century right up to 1926 and the new introduced 1915 land valuations include tenants names. For participants to get the best value out of this course, have some easy searches in mind, plus some more difficult ones that the group might be able to help you unravel. Bring your research names with you. As it is a pay-to-view website, you will need to pay for your particular searches and any printouts, however if you have an NZSG flash drive you can save the images to copy onto your own computer or you may buy one during the workshop.
Australian Research: An Introduction $15.00

Presenter Bruce Tudor
In this first Australian Workshop we will look at records for Births, Deaths and Marriages from all Australian States; look at what information they contain and where to find copies. We will also look at wills and probate records and cemetery records. Most of these records are on-line but many are still not. We will also look at more current records about people available on-line. If you are new to Australian research of you want to go back to the basics this course is for you.
