It is estimated that globally there are between 25 and 100 million people who make up the Scottish Diaspora. The developing interest in discovering your roots is being met by a growing range of resources and facilities and we are proud to have created a further such resource at the Salmon Bothy.
Our team of Bothy volunteers has been given training in helping visitors to explore their roots and the facility includes access to online resources. Additionally, a steadily increasing library of information and photographs is available about the history of the area, providing that all important extra dimension by which our visitors can discover what life was actually like for their antecedents. We have a catalogue of ancestor charts compiled by individual researchers with connections to the surrounding area. Anyone with an ancestral link to Portsoy is invited to complete a family tree, so that other researchers sharing the same ancestors can make contact and exchange information of mutual interest
If you would like assistance in your family search, Qualified Genealogist, Alison Smith, is available by appointment. Get in touch with her here.
