This presentation will help you learn how to re-purpose your lectures to increase your revenue. This video begins with the presentation in progress. The presenter believes genealogical speakers are underpaid because they underrate themselves and back down when pushed to modify fees. This not only hurts the speaker but reinforces lower fees for other speakers. Most organizations are willing to pay a fee if you are a good speaker. It is estimated that speakers spend up to 100 hours to create a new presentation.
Scottish testaments, loosely called 'wills', can be disappointing for genealogists because they often contain very few names, and no details of land and property. This is a consequence of the Scottish system of inheritance up to 1868. However, such details are often discovered in retours of services of heirs (usually in Latin), sasines, and in trust dispositions and settlements. In this talk, Dr Bruce Durie conducts a guided tour around these document classes, with 'live' online searches. Dr Bruce Durie is Course Director, Genealogical Studies, at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, where he founded and runs the Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma and Masters programme in Genealogical Studies. He is the author of a number of books, including Scottish Genealogy.
