As Alan is on his online tour of archive images and has reached Edinburgh, I thought for my Sepia Saturday post that I’d show you where I carry out my genealogy research in Edinburgh – General Register House, at the East end of Princes Street. Due to the current adverse weather conditions, two of the search rooms were closed yesterday, and I was the only researcher in the Adam Dome. Check out the fabulous ceiling
The walls are lined with various Registers and, in an alcove is a statue of King George III, which was originally placed in the centre of the Rotunda in 1791. He’s a little bit spooky to be alone with, if I’m honest 🙂 You can read more about this historic building here
Sorry the images aren’t brilliant, but I took them using my phone. While you’re all on a virtual tour of Scotland, why not visit the Orkney Archive blog (rather irreverent and amusing, I think).
