You remember the saying about… ‘only understanding another person by walking in their shoes’?
Usually it is said to remind us to be a little more empathetic in the present, but what if you are wanting to gain a deeper understanding of the past – and in particular your own family history.
Walking in your ancestor’s shoes might seem impossible.
Not so, if you are interested in your Scottish family history.
Mary’s Meander’s Scottish Ancestral Tours are all about enabling you to take that step back in time and walk in the same villages, towns, – battlefields even – that were once trodden by your ancestors.
