Visit Scotland has deemed 2022 as the Year of Stories and I can't think of a more fitting theme for family historians. I will be taking part in a number of activities and events throughout the year. 

I have partnered with Clare Wilson for a full year of events. Clare is a professional genealogists based in Lanarkshire Scotland. We co-host the monthly webinars for the Lanarkshire Family History Society. Clare runs a Facebook group called Kilted Ancestors. Kilted Ancestors "is a place where anyone with Scottish Ancestry can share everything from Photographs, Stories, details of Artefacts, Letters & Information on where your Ancestors came from or anything else relating to your Scottish Roots.
Social History is a big part of Genealogy it is what brings our Ancestors to life, it is important to keep these stories alive!"

This is the best place for us to focus on the theme for the year. We have four major themes for 2022 and we will be breaking these down to monthly prompts associated with the themes. The four themes are:
  • Immigration/Emigration
  • Police and Crime
  • Industry
  • Brands
Each month, Clare and I will be popping on with a Facebook Live event to motivate, encourage and share. All of these are free. We will be giving ideas, talking about some of the stories members of the page have shared and answering questions you may have as you work to build the stories of your ancestors. 

Please consider joining Clare's group (I am a moderator) and take part in some of the fun activities we have

In addition to the Facebook group, Clare and I have planned four conference style events, each based on the four themes we will be using in the Facebook group. Each of these events will have guest speakers who will talk about the theme for that quarter. We will share more about these as we get closer and the speakers have all been confirmed. 

We have confirmed the dates and themes, however:
  • March 19th - Immigration/Emigration
  • June 18 - Police and Crime
  • Sept 10 - Industry
  • Dec 10 - Brands (think whisky, biscuits and all things Scottish)
The days will start at 9 am eastern and run for about 3 hours.
