How do I delete the birthdays of every Google+ contact? For some months my calendar has 4 or 5 notifications if these people are also in communities or more than one circle. Google used to be smart. Now it's intrusive

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. More information can be found at: https://www.genealogytoursofscotland.ca/

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:

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 and Canadian raised, I am a genealogy educator with an expertise in the Scottish records. I enjoy sharing new resources and gently giving people a “nudge” so that they can find their ancestors on their own.
I am also a lecturer, writer and blogger on Genealogy, Using Online Resources and of course, Scottish ancestry.
I enjoy taking fellow Scots "home" to discover their ancestral heritage. Many people are interested in going to Scotland to do their family history research, but they don't know where to begin. To make this easier and more productive, I run Genealogy Tours of Scotland which offers 10 day trips to the Scottish Archives in Edinburgh.
These tours not only provide people with documentation on their ancestors, but also helps them to fill in the social history and missing pieces of information on their Scottish ancestors by giving them access to records not available online.
These trips also help people to discover their own Scottish Heritage in the process.
