Archivists Presenting at the Scottish ViC

The Scottish ViC is the only virtual conference dedicated to Scottish genealogy research. The presentations are based on record sets that will help to provide the social story for your ancestors. The Scottish ViC is honoured to have genealogists, archivists and librarians who have an intimate knowledge of these original records and who will help you to understand how you can use these records to build the social history for your Scottish ancestor. 

This year, there are two archivists presenting at the virtual conference. 


Senior archivist Dr Irene O'Brien (Glasgow City Archives) will share the genealogy gems that are the Glasgow Poor Law records and will show you how these amazingly detailed records will give you incredible insight into the lives of your Scottish ancestors. 


Retired archivist Margaret Fox (National Records of Scotland) will share the genealogical information that can be gleaned from the High Court of Justiciary Records and how, in combination with statutory records, can help you re-build the story of your ancestors. If your ancestors were transported as part of their court sentence, they would have come before the High Court and Margaret will show you the details that can be found in these records. 

The Scottish ViC takes place on Saturday, January 26th, 2019. The pre-recorded presentations will be released on a timed basis, just like an in-person conference. Following the presentation, the presenters will be available for a LIVE Q&A in the closed Facebook group - or via email for those not comfortable with Facebook. 

Presentations will be available for review until midnight on Thursday, January 31, 2019 to allow for time zone challenges and to allow people in the west of the continent or in the southern hemisphere to be able to watch the presentations during waking hours. 

In addition to presentations, there is a virtual marketplace where vendors will be offering discounts on their products or services which will enhance your genealogical research. All for just $99 cad (about $74 usd)

About the Presenter
Thomas MacEnteeWhat happens when a "tech guy" with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who's also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more.
 
Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to "re-purpose today's technology for tomorrow's genealogy."
 
Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
