Between today and Wednesday, my genealogy column, Roots to the Past, is available in the following Atlantic Canada newspapers:
Saturday: The Citizen (Amherst)

Wednesday: The Lunenburg County Progress Bulletin (Lunenburg County)
Title: The National Library of Scotland
Snippet: The National Library of Scotland is “the world’s leading centre for the study of Scotland and the Scots”. They are a “major European research library, with collections of world-class importance.” Researchers can take advantage of their dedication to preserving history and genealogy in three ways: viewing a selection of collections online, registering to view hundreds more digital resources or visiting in person. Anyone can stop in, get a library card and consult material in their reading room.
Since I won’t be boarding a plane for Scotland any time soon to explore my McDonald family history, I’ll have to take advantage of the online resources. Unfortunately, since I don’t have a mailing address in Scotland, I can’t register to have access to the larger database. It is free to do so, if you have an address there. The Licensed Digital Collection is available to only registered members.
The top menu bar allows visitors to explore the site with ease. Under Digital Resources, I found Digital Gallery, Licensed Digital Collections, Map Images and Learning Zone.
