About Us
About Our Business
Your Scottish Descent was formed with the sole aim of bringing people closer to their
Scottish ancestors by providing a first class research service aimed at people anywhere in
the world. We satisfy home-grown customers as well as our distant cousins scattered
across the globe, be they in America, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and
other parts of the world.

We can trace your Scottish family history across the whole of Scotland from the lowlands
to the highlands.  We have carried out research for events on the Hebridean Islands of
Islay and Jura on Scotland's west coast to as far away as the Shetland Islands, the
Northernmost part of the British Isles.  No matter where your family comes from in
Scotland we can trace your Scottish family tree.

Your Scottish Descent has a small team, however, everyone involved understands the
importance of the work to the customer and aims to deliver the best quality service in as
short a time as possible.

Founder  - Robert Edwards BA (Hons)

Our founder Robert Edwards graduated with an Honours degree in Business Law and
since then he has undertaken freelance research writing on subjects ranging from the
law, business and his real passion, history. Utilising the research skills that he perfected
at University and the experience that he has gained from researching his own family
history Robert has traced one part of his family back as far as 1585.

Having undertaken genealogical research on
behalf of other people over the years Robert
decided to put this experience to good use
and help to bring our distant Scottish cousins,
wherever they are in the world, a service that
is in high demand by founding the company.

Due to his broad interest in history Robert is
familiar with many key aspects of Scotland’s
past, especially its social and architectural
history.  This knowledge combined with the
skills and strengths that he developed during
his academic years ensured that he was well
placed to offer a professional and personal
service.

Roberts favourite period in history is the late
18th century, a time when fledging movements
for democratic reform were springing up in
Scotland in response to the French Revolution.  His favourite Scottish historical
personality is Thomas Muir of Huntershill, one of the ‘Scottish Martyrs’ who were accused
of sedition and put on trial at the High Court of Justiciary at Edinburgh in 1793, please

Thomas Muir to learn more.
