Re: heads up - informative Scottish conference online right now
I hired Emma Maxwell to do some Scottish research for me a couple of years ago, involving records at the Archives that are stored off-site (unrelated to Islay).
This was my only experience with hiring a researcher. She was very helpful and quite reasonable in cost.

Subject: [Islay] heads up - informative Scottish conference online right now
Yesterday I was getting ready to watch a webinar about Scottish Wills when I discovered there was a Scottish conference happening right then. I started watching and it was excellent and had to make the choice so didn’t see the other webinar. What is so great now is that you too can watch the whole presentation online – but just for a very short time!
If like us, your Thanksgiving (in Canada!) is without your family physically with you, here’s something to help chase the blues away.
Happy (different) Thanksgiving, Sue Visser
