    Family historians with Scottish roots or those interested in Scotland may be interested ..

    I found it fascinating and useful .. I knew there was a horse tax, but not a clock and watch tax .. some things never change ..

    Chris Paton's web site Scottish Genes is also very good for Scottish research. Chris knows his stuff - and he's a nice guy too :Smile:
