A Borders clan

A message arrived recently informing us of an attempt to raise support for a bid to Unesco for World Heritage Status for the Scottish Borders region. In support of this and in recognition of the significance of the Borders to the clan, a special section of the Scott site is now in place at

Here's quite an interesting Irish-American Scott perspective that I came across in a blog search recently:

ProQuest Obituaries - a first in genealogy research?

Another general family history resource I came across recently is this database service from Proquest. Here's what they have to say about it:

"ProQuest Obituaries™ offers more than 10 million obituaries and death notices in full-image format from uninterrupted historical archives of top national newspapers. An obituary is often the only biographical sketch that was ever devoted to an individual and can provide valuable clues that significantly advance genealogical research. Researchers have long known this, but up until now there’s never been a resource exclusively dedicated to providing this treasured, deep historical content online."

Ask at your local library about this service or check online at:
