Scottish Genealogy Network - 2nd CPD day report

I had the great pleasure yesterday to give a talk on Irish research at our second Scottish Genealogy Network CPD Day at the University of Stirling Management Centre at Bridge of Allan. There were plenty of other talks and discussions also, at what turned out to be an even busier event than our first one in April - we had 18 attendees back then, yesterday we had an unbelievable 27! On an organisational level, a new development is that the SGN also now has its first group secretary, a position that Emma Maxwell of Maxwell Genealogy in the Borders has graciously offered to take up for the next few months.

For a full write up on the event, and for more on the SGN itself, please read the group's blog post at http://scottishgenealogynetwork.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/second-scottish-genealogy-network-cpd.html - there are big plans for the next few months!

The Scottish Genealogy Network is a networking group that meets on a monthly basis. There is no joining fee and no memb
ership criteria other than that members must work professionally within the Scottish genealogical industry, whether as a professional researcher, archivist, librarian, course tutor or an associated discipline. If that sounds like you, please do get in touch!
