I'm Chris Halliday a professional genealogist and family historian based in Edinburgh. Researching my own and others family history for over 30 years, I turned a hobby into a career.After gaining an MA(Hons) in Scottish Cultural Studies and an MSc in genealogy from the Universities of Aberdeen and Strathclyde, I established Scotland's Genealogy. I'm also a member of the following professional bodies and societies:

Based in the Scottish capital,I have ready access to the main national repositories:archives,libraries and museums.However I also travel throughout Scotland visiting local archives and places associated with clients ancestry.Geographical areas I'm particularly familiar with are: Edinburgh, Dundee, Inverness, Dumfries & Galloway, the Borders and Strathspey.

Not just a desk bound researcher, I'm a keen hillwalker exploring areas off the beaten track and thoroughly enjoy combining research in the archives with visiting locations throughout Scotland.

Please contact me if I can be of further assistance,whether you are just beginning the search for your Scottish ancestry or have years of experience.
