Holding the Space’s Roving Reporter, 10 year old Hayden Dalgetty, was a special guest at the Scottish Parliament on 19th December. 

Hayden won the Christmas Card Competition of David Torrance MSP and was invited to the Scottish Parliament for a tour and lunch. 

Not only did Hayden spent time in the Debating Chamber witnessing historical debates she also met First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. 

Hayden said, “I enjoyed the visit to see David with my Mum and Dad and thank you for Wilbur the penguin!” 

Look out for more of Hayden’s Roving Reporter adventures on Holding the Space in 2020. 

Well done Hayden!! 

Scottish Ancestral Records recommended by Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine

I’m absolutely thrilled to share the news Scottish Ancestral Records has been recommended as Podcast of the Month by Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine!!

 Britain’s bestselling family history magazine.

A great testament to Ken Nisbet of the Scottish Genealogy Society and Scottish Association of Family History Societies and all those history sleuths who help others find their family story. It also officially confirms my status as a history geek. 

Scottish Ancestral Records is available wherever you get your podcasts. The latest episode on Statutory Records is available here!

Next month, Ken and I will be discussing Census Records.
