Using ScotlandsPeople for ALL Your Scottish Genealogy Needs - Bruce Durie
Can’t find the Scottish records you need in Ancestry, MyHeritage, FamilySearch etc? That’s because they don’t have the records. And they won’t be getting them.  Frankly, why should they, when they are perfectly available at ScotlandsPeople – Parish BMD from the 1500s to 1854 (including Catholic and Secession Churches as well as Church of Scotland) Statutory BMD from 1855 Wills & Testaments (which are not the same thing!) Censuses from 1841 to 1911 Valuation rolls from 1855 Coats of Arms Photographs and illustrations Maps and plans …and more
 
There is even more at the companion site ScotlandsPlace, which is not just geographical but has Land and Tax Rolls and more records.
 
How to use these sites and get the best out of them, is the subject of this Webinar.

Willkommen in Australien! Researching German-Australian Families 
- Benjamin Hollister 
With German speakers being the largest non-British group of migrants to Australia in the nineteenth century, many Australians find a German line that needs researching. Issues such as name changes, language barriers and identifying place of origin, however, hold some researchers back, but more often than not records exist online to help break through. Identifying the records that will help reveal correct forms of names, and places of origins, and analysing the credibility of the various sources and variations is critical. An introduction to a range of sources and source types to help researchers trace their German-Australian families both in Australia and overseas.

Chinese genealogical research is challenging. Even the names are confusing—a person could have two or three distinctly different names during his lifetime, and possibly an Americanized version. This webinar will give a brief history of the act, tell where the files are located, and how to access them. Examples of the rich genealogical information found in the files will be given—interrogations, affidavits, photographs, vital records, and more. The Act was in effect for 61 years—1882 to 1943. There are over 5 million Chinese Americans in the U.S. Many with ancestors who arrived in the United States before 1943 may have someone with a Chinese Exclusion Act case file.
