Scottish family history

User Review  - Not Available - Book Verdict

Scottish librarian Moody's 1988 volumes are for those interested in tracing Scottish history or family roots. Each provides a bit of history with instructions on how readers can dig deeper for their own ancestry. Read full review

Don't let the stuffy-sounding introduction put you off. This book gets down to business in a hurry and is divided up into logical chapters that flow easily. The author sites many printed references that can serve well as jumping-off points for deeper research. One thing that it probably lacks is a few good timelines for some significant events that occur through the history being presented. I find myself re-reading parts to gain perspective and order for the various causes for migration.
