The Red Book of Scotland Online

The Red Book of Scotland seeks to fill an enormous void that exists in Scotland’s genealogical history. Researched over 30 years, this publication is fruit of a massive self-funded research project undertaken by Gordon MacGregor, and places genealogy back within its rightful place as a serious academic discipline.
