Roots in North-East Scotland?

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Alison Report 12 Apr 2013 18:13

As past of my Masters degree I'm carrying out a survey of people who have carried out ancestral research during a visit to the North-East of Scotland.

As the specific focus of the study is on the historic counties of Aberdeenshire, Banffshire and Kincardineshire, responses are sought only from those with ancestral connections to these areas and who are now resident elsewhere in Scotland, in the UK or further afield. Respondents who are not already familiar with the website are invited to view it before completing the questionnaire.

The survey can be found at and it will remain open until midnight on 23rd April.
