​​​​Two spring tours have been scheduled for 2021 to coincide with the

SAFHS annual conference in Dundee on

Saturday April 24th, 2021

†if travel restrictions are still in place, this tour will take place Sept 26 - Oct 2, 2021†


The Edinburgh tour will begin April 18th which, as always, is the day of arrival. Research will take place at the ScotlandsPeople Centre/NRS for three full days. There will be a chance to research at both the Scottish Genealogy Society and the NLS but the timing will depend on group size. You may have to choose just one of these places.  

If you wish to attend the SAFHS conference, you can either: 

  • Leave Edinburgh Friday evening and take a train to Dundee (train fees are not included) which will get you into Dundee ahead of the conference. We have hotel rooms reserved in Dundee. You can stay Friday and Saturday or just the Friday.

  • Remain in Edinburgh Friday night and take the train up to Dundee Saturday morning. The conference usually begins about 10 am. You can stay at the hotel in Dundee on the Saturday evening. 

  • Remain in Edinburgh throughout and take the train up Saturday, returning to Edinburgh following the close of the conference without staying in Dundee at all and without needing to move your luggage. 

For those staying in Dundee, you may wish to stay in Dundee for a few extra days and do some research locally. If that is the case, let me know and I will see if the hotel has availability. 

If you have ancestors from the Aberdeen area, you may wish to attend the conference so that you can speak to the Aberdeen and North East Scotland FHS.  You may then wish to travel to Aberdeen from Dundee to spend a couple of days locally. The train ride is about an hour or the bus is about 90 minutes. Any travel to Aberdeen will be at your own planning and expense. 


APRIL 18 - 23, 2021
