Description

Scottish Kin provides professional Scottish genealogy & family history services to help you know more about your “kin” wherever you are in your research process.

The story of your family’s past can be fascinating, surprising, and occasionally mysterious. Carol has been researching Scottish and English family history for over 20 years.  Her recent research into bigamy in Victorian Scotland for her Masters (MSc) confirmed that extraordinary stories can come from ordinary people.

Having worked and lived in Tallinn for four years and successfully completed Estonian state language exams, Carol also offers an initial research service for those interested in their Estonian roots.
