During this research day there will be 4 classes about Scottish research. When you register, you are signing up for the whole day but you do not need to attend each class. Following you have a list of the classes with their descriptions:

- 8:30 AM MST - Using the Wiki and Scotlands People for Scots Research - The FamilySearch Research Wiki is a rich and ever-growing resource to help guide your search in Scottish records. ScotlandsPeople is the Scottish government's site to search censuses, civil registration, many church records, wills and testaments, and more. Learn how to use these two sites to further your Scottish family history research.

- 10:00 AM MST - Scotland Land and Property Records - This webinar will give an overview of Scotland Services of Heirs and Sasines records. They help us understand how land was transferred and are great for naming family relationships. It will show how to access those records and use them effectively to discover the family relationships in Scotland dating back to the 1500s. 

- 11:30 AM MST - Och Aye! Understanding Weird Scottish Words and Phrases - This class looks at the history of Gaelic and Scots and then focuses on the languages and words of genealogical value for people doing research in Scottish records.

- 1:00 PM MST - Scotland Probate Records - The purpose of this class is to introduce the Scottish system of probate or, in other words, the handling of the Scottish deceased’s property, both real and personal, after death. The class will include the procedures, customs and terms associated with it as well as the time period, content and availability of the records.
