Story
Tagline
I'm an avid genealogist with a special interest in Scottish Records. I'm a blog author, speaker and newsletter editor.
Introduction

Scottish born, Canadian raised, Christine Woodcock had the best of both worlds, growing up immersed in Scottish culture. Realising that others of the Scots diaspora were not as fortunate, she started her business, Genealogy Tours of Scotland (https://www.genealogytoursofscotland.ca/) to allow others researching their Scottish roots the opportunity to return to the land of their ancestors, conduct family history research and deepen their sense of belonging to their ancestral kin.
