The Anglo Scottish Pages

The Manchester Genealogist is the quarterly magazine of the MLFHS. For many years now the Anglo Scottish branch has proudly maintained its own pages every quarter, bringing you research and articles to inform and help you with your Anglo Scottish search. 

Our special interest is the movement of Scots towards the Manchester area and also the larger, worldwide diaspora of Scots. Over the years our pages have recorded research in Scotland and in Lancashire and accounts of searches and military life worldwide.

We have reviewed talks on subjects as disparate as the centuries-old connections of Scots and Ulster Irish people, the lives of Scots whose innovative work saved the lives of thousands of people and DNA.

Anglo Scots Articles

The publication of so many articles every quarter requires a small army of writers to create reviews of society and branch meetings and to create independent accounts of their own family or local history research.

Variety gives our pages life. DNA, war records, emigration, industry, church records, poverty, politics, reform. Who, in your history, stayed in the homeland, who trod that long path toward a new life, and what influenced these decisions?

Your research, your family's history, adds to our knowledge of the movement of our Scottish ancestors. If you have a story to tell, we would love to hear more.


Writing for Us

The Anglo Scottish branch is always looking for interesting articles from society members. We need you. Whether you have an article already written, or you have research completed and think it might make good reading, we want to hear from you.

If you enjoy attending events and would like to review those events, we want to hear from you. If you have a passion for a subject that would be of interest to our readers, we want to hear from you. We will always need a good supply of long articles and short articles to balance the content in the Anglo Scottish section, 250 words are just as valuable as 2,500 words.
