Genealogy Tours of Scotland and the Scottish Institute
There is no greater, more awe-inspiring feeling than walking in the footsteps of your ancestors. It is both humbling and gratifying. For many, this is a once in a lifetime trip, something on their "bucket list".
In order to have a successful genealogical experience, it is important to plan ahead. Preparation is the key and by knowing how to prepare, who to contact, where to look and when to travel, you will discover a well-rounded, deeply satisfying trip to your ancestral homeland.
Genealogy Tours of Scotland provides you with pre-tour planning, ensures you protected time in the research facilities, organizes talks on the resources in each facility and plans your week for you. These 10 day tours allow time to research your ancestry, time to visit the area of Scotland where your ancestors lived and gives you the opportunity to indulge in your Scottish heritage.

For professional genealogists who may do client research for people with Scottish ancestry, Genealogy Tours of Scotland is providing a Scottish Institute. This is a week of learning from the experts in Edinburgh as well as time to conduct research in the archives. The week culminates with a joint professional development day with our colleagues in Scotland. More information on the Institute can be found at: http://www.scottishinstitute.ca/about.html
