Ancestral research

If you are investigating your Moray Speyside ancestry, the ScotlandsPeople web site will enable you to do a lot of research before you visit, but the best way to understand your personal heritage is to come and walk in the footsteps of your ancestors

The Local Heritage Centre in Elgin is a wonderful source of information and advice. So too is the Moray & Nairn Family History Society, whose members are all actively researching their ancestry. If your ancestors are buried in Moray, the Moray Burial Ground Research Group may have information of interest. The group is undertaking a long term programme to survey all 140 burial grounds in Moray.
