Registration is OPEN for the Scottish ViC (Virtual Conference)

The third annual Scottish ViC takes place on Saturday, January 25th, 2020. 

We bring the learning to YOU. No need to travel. Enjoy learning from experts who are intimately familiar with the records and topics they will be presenting to you from the comfort of home. 
The day is fast-paced, informative and interactive. Each presentation is followed by a live Q&A with the presenter. 

The learning offered during the ViC is unmatched anywhere else and it really is testament to the fact that your Scottish ancestors are waiting to be found on the shelves of libraries and archives in Scotland.

Registration includes access to all 7 presentations, the syllabus and the marketplace for 7 days following the ViC to allow for learning to take place during waking hours for those not in the Eastern Time Zone (North America)

Topics and presenters: 

Archivist Margaret Fox will show us the richness of Wills and Testaments for genealogy research

Archivist Irene O'Brien will share with us the information that is available in the records generated upon one's death

Genealogist Emma Maxwell will share her knowledge of the genealogical gems available in both Prison and Asylum records (2 separate presentations)

Aoife O'Connor of the British Newspaper Archive will show us how to discover more about the social history and lives of our Scottish ancestors using Newspapers

Historian Stephen Mullen will shed some light on Scotland's participation in the Caribbean Slave Trade

Genealogy Educator Christine Woodcock will broaden our understanding of the reasons that brought Scots to Canada
