This website and associated services were founded and managed by Dr Bruce Durie, recognised internationally as one of the leading practitioners in the field, particularly for his teaching, writing and broadcasting.

  In 2013-14, Bruce was honoured by election to the Académie Internationale de Généalogie, the award of the Companionate of Merit of the Sovereign and Military Order of St Lazarus Of Jerusalem and Life Membership of the Fife Family History Society.

  He started and directed (until September 2011) the much-acclaimed Genealogical, Heraldic and Palaeographic Studies Programme (leading to Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and the Masters degree) at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland.

  As Honorary Fellow at Strathclyde, he is currently working with the Genealogical Studies team (www.strath.ac.uk/genealogy) to develop a full-time Masters programme.

  He also regularly teaches courses on Genealogy, Documents and Heraldry for the University of Edinburgh.

  Bruce is also Shennachie (Genealogist and historian) to the Chief of Durie (www.duriefamily.co.uk) , and to the Order of Alba (www.orderofalba.org)

  He has authored over 30 books on family and local history, which include the best-selling Scottish Genealogy (History Press, 3rd ed., 2011) as well as volumes on Victorian crime fiction and the internet. Most recently, these include Documents for Genealogy and Local History - Palaeography, Law and Language and Welsh Genealogy, (both for The History Press). See BOOKS for more.

  The BBC Radio Scotland series Digging up Your Roots and A House With a Past have attracted rave reviews and a solid listener following.
  His original background is in medicine, researching and teaching in neuropharmacology for over 20 years.
