Maxton Met - David Roseburgh

Many thanks to David what was a very informative exposition of the many and varied pitfalls which may be encountered when researching one's family history.
As a professional genealogist, David was able to combine a deep knowledge of his subject with a dry humour which kept the audience entertained. His descriptions of the many ways in which the record keepers of the past seem to have gone out of their way to confuse or 'mislead' was particularly interesting.
"Skeletons in the Cupboard" indeed.
