Dr David Dobson - about the author

Scottish Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond
By David Dobson

This book is the culmination of over fifty years of historical and genealogical research by Dr. David Dobson in archives and libraries throughout Scotland. As one would expect in a Scottish genealogy guidebook, this publication identifies the major sources and repositories for those just getting started on their research. What makes this book stand out from all the rest is its focus on the less commonly used sources that exist which will allow more advanced researchers to put the basic facts they gave gathered into context.
Dr. Dobson highlights ways to trace Scottish ancestors using alternative sources, primarily those covering the years between 1550 and 1850. For each research topic - including statutory registers, church records, tax records, sasines and land registers, court records, military and maritime sources, burgh and estate records, emigration records and much more - he has compiled an extensive list of the publications and archival records that will enable family historians to advance their research.

About the Author
Dr David Dobson is a recognized authority on the Scottish origins of American colonists. Many of his books focus on connections between Scots who went abroad and their motherland. In addition to the immigrants themselves, he has also prepared books on the ships, shipmasters, merchants, whalers, and mariners involved in maritime trades.
Dr. Dobson was born in Carnoustie, Scotland, and was educated at Dundee College of Technology (now University of Abertay), the University of St. Andrews, and the University of Aberdeen. Most of his working life was spent at Madras College, St. Andrews. He has been an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen, the University of Edinburgh, and at present at the University of St. Andrews. Since 1983, he has been researching the Scottish Diaspora in archives and libraries throughout Scotland, London, Ireland, Copenhagen, the Netherlands, Madeira, Canada, the United States, and the West Indies. He is the author of more than 200 books, including Scottish Emigration to Colonial America, 1607-1785, and numerous historical and genealogical source books, plus he has contributed to many other publications, such as An Atlas of Scottish History to 1707, Scottish Communities Abroad in the Early Modern Period, and Scotland and the Flemish People. He now lives in Dundee and is working on further source books.
He has also compiled a large number of books designed to help researchers identify people who lived in Scotland in the 1600s and 1700s. He uses many sources that supplement more commonly used parochial records and testaments providing a broader picture of those living there at the time many emigrants boarded ships to the American colonies.
Many, but not all of Dobson's books are available at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dozens are available online to Ancestry and World Vital Records subscribers. Books marked PILI have been indexed in the series Passenger and Immigrants Lists Index, which is also available online to Ancestry subscribers.
