Genealogy in the Gaidhealtach


Genealogy in the Gaidhealtach distils some of the knowledge Graeme has gained working for 25 years as a professional genealogist specialising in Highland clans and families. He uses examples to illustrate particular problems from research into his own family and the families of clients, as well as the experience he has gained over many years acting as the Seanachaidh (historian & genealogist) for Clan MacKenzie and Clan MacMillan.
