Announcing a Glasgow Tour for 2018!

At the request of several participants, I have put together another Glasgow research tour for 2018. Tour dates are May 16-24th, 2018. 

Tour fees are $2675 Canadian. 

The tour will allow for five full days of research with an optional sixth day. The tour runs from mid week to mid week, allowing free time on the weekend. This not only provides a break from the research, but it allows time to process what we have uncovered. And it allows time to re-charge ourselves by resting, shopping or sightseeing. 

New for 2018 is the opportunity to research Lanarkshire ancestors who were outside of the city of Glasgow proper. These opportunities include:
  • Lanarkshire Family History Society
  • North Lanarkshire Archives 
North Lanarkshire Archives collects and preserves the historical records covering the areas of Airdrie, Bellshill, Coatbridge, Cumbernauld, Kilsyth, Motherwell, Shotts, Stepps and Wishaw.

There will be three full days of research at the Glasgow City Archives, where records for South Lanarkshire are on deposit. 

The tour is once again being limited in size to allow for group cohesion and also so that we don't overwhelm the research facilities. 

As it sits right now, based on those who expressed interest, and were therefore given first opportunity for registering for the tour, there are only FIVE spaces left. 

If you have Glaswegian or Lanarkshire ancestors and would like to research in the records in and around Glasgow, this is your chance! But don't hesitate or you may lose out.
