About this Event

DOWN AND OUT IN SCOTLAND

CHRIS PATON

'It is often the case in family history research that our ancestors' lives were best documented when the chips were truly down. We may have had ancestors in poverty or debt, with mental issues or illnesses, who were assaulted, murdered, raped, who committed suicide, engaged in insurgency, or who were punished by the state or the Kirk. No matter the crisis, a quill and ink were always in close proximity. In this talk Chris Paton explores some of the areas of ancestral hardship, to allow us to truly understand the situations that our forebears had to endure and overcome'.
