Find an Expert

The Scottish Genealogy Network is not an accrediting body; our focus is to provide a networking group for professional genealogists in Scotland. We are, however, often asked if any members are accepting clients. We have therefore decided to create a list of members who may be able to assist you. Genealogy is a broad subject and we all have different skills and experience levels, a link on this page should not be taken as accreditation. We recommend a full and open discussion with any genealogist you seek to employ to make sure they know your needs and are able to fulfil them before you begin.
