Tay Valley Family History Society has a new series of online talks for our members. This is the fourth, 'Auntie Jean', a talk by our Vice-president Doug Soutar on events involving scandal, fraud, forgery, contumacy, desertion, and the 1772 processes instituted by Jean Chaplin, mantua-maker in Arbroath, against her spouse William Jackson, barber “sometime residing in Montrose”. This talk gives the story of what Doug found and how he found it. For more information, follow this link https://youtu.be/rdREt_PRmhM

There's no Q&A zoom for this one as it's 'summer holiday', but please, if you have queries for Doug, do send them to the usual 'talks' address, [email protected], and they will be passed on to him. Passed talks are also available on the Members Noticeboard. For access to this, you will be required to use your members access password to log in.

 Also, there is a video from David Dobson, our vice-president, promoting his new book on doing Family History, entitled "Scottish Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond". This is also on youtube so you can view it - here's the link: https://youtu.be/lcxAgOFPUCU
