Seminar series 2023/24

The Friends of the Argyll Papers are delighted to introduce a series of online seminars informed by research undertaken in the archive, to take place on Zoom. All seminars are scheduled for a Friday, at various start times to allow Friends around the world to participate.

UK time when Duncan Beaton will present ‘Campbell Pedigrees: the good, the useful and the totally unreliable’.

Duncan will be looking at good/reliable pedigrees, how to use and/or quote from primary sources, including the work done on his own ancestors, and the wonderful Campbell genealogists of the past (and present!). He will cover useful sites including Burkes “Landed Gentry”, the LDS sites like familysearch and the IGI, and ancestral research sites when sources are quoted. He will also explain the how some pedigrees are unreliable as they have been adulterated by additional unsourced material and hearsay, and the totally unreliable.  Essential guidance for all of us trying to trace families in these many different sources.
