Long DescriptionScotland has possibly the most complete and best-kept set of vital records and other documents on the planet. Given both this and the extraordinary worldwide Scottish diaspora (approximately 28 million people can claim Scottish ancestry), the lack of a really thorough guide to Scottish genealogy is a significant gap. Bruce Durie's book bridges that gap with authority and provides a lively sense of the excitement of the historical chase. Scottish Genealogy covers not only sources and records (physical and electronic) but is also firmly based on established genealogical practice, with worked examples, templates, and methods which will enable family historians everywhere to exploit the rich resources in Scotland. Bruce Durie strives to disabuse the reader of the many canards which have accompanied the recent upsurge in interest in family history—notably that it's "all on the internet," that there is such a thing as a "family coat of arms," and that everything written down must be true.

Over the past few months, we have been making some very big changes to the site. You have already seen some of the cosmetic changes but the bulk of the changes have been behind the scenes.

The biggest changes have all happened on the database side of things. We have changed the way we collect, review and display the information for each product.

Although most people won't care about the changes that happen in the background, some of those changes also come with updates to the user interface beyond simple cosmetics.

We hope to have the new version out to the public in the next few weeks and by the end of this year for sure. But we would like to offer a few users the opportunity to try out the new site in the testing environment.

Basically, we would like a few people to just play around in the test area and if something isn't working as expected, just let us know.

If this is something you might be interested in, please contact us. We will set up a user account for you and then you can test.

Just keep in mind, as people are testing, we will continue to make improvements so the test site may change a little from day to day.
