One of the best things about genealogy is the many opportunities to learn. Workshops, magazines, blogs, conferences and even Facebook pages/groups. Whether you are a beginner, a seasoned researcher or a professional, there are always learning opportunities available.

If you are looking for workshops, always check with your local genealogy or historical society to see what they have on offer. Most offer talks for free, but may charge a nominal fee for a more in-depth workshop. You can also look at the State genealogy societies.
There are also some large National and Regional Conferences which are not only a great way to learn from the experts, but also a great way to connect with other like-minded people. People whose eyes won’t glaze over after 15 minutes of listening to you prattle on about your research, but who will actually be excited by what you share and might even offer a strategy or two to try on those brick wall ancestors.

Scottish born, Canadian raised, Christine had the best of both worlds, growing up immersed in Scottish culture. Realizing that others of the Scots diaspora were not as fortunate, she started her business, Genealogy Tours of Scotland to allow others researching their Scottish roots the opportunity to return to the land of their ancestors, conduct family history research and deepen their sense of belonging to their ancestral kin.
