We offer free introductory help with family history to guests who are trying to trace their Orcadian ancestry. To those who book for a week or more this will amount to several hours research. Kathleen has many years experience in genealogy research and has had two books published on the social history of her local parish. Both books, Tankerness School 1876 - 1969 and Tankerness: Now and Then, are extremely useful for family history research.
Any guests requiring help with tracing their ancestors should get in touch with Kathleen to discuss this when they book their accommodation.
