List of all Members

The Scottish Genealogy Network is a group of professionals working within the Scottish genealogy industry, whether as a professional researcher, archivist, librarian, course tutor or an associated discipline. We meet together once a month to chat, exchange ideas, and learn from one another. Additionally we get together about twice a year to have a professional development day. 

We are not an accrediting organisation, and anyone who works professionally in the industry is welcome to join us.

  1. I live in Canada, so I am unable to attend the upcoming genealogy show in Lanarkshire. I have ancestors who came from this area, and I have hit a bit of a road block in my research. How can I contact a professional genealogist to help me with this? Thanks, Marlene Baird

    1. Email scotsgenenet @ (removing the spaces) and our secretary will recommend a member who can help.
