To find out about your Scottish roots, we look at:

• Military records world wide
• And much more!

On completion, the detailed information is professionally presented in a number of Scottish genealogy reports, including a pedigree chart, a family chart, a places report and others too!

Below are samples of how your pedigree chart can look great over a favourite family photograph.

Scottish Family Tree

As unique as you!

Having a family tree is a special gift for your whole family. It tells the story of your unique past and can be passed down the generations. It's a legacy - a special keepsake.

We at Kilted Cousins enjoy unearthing branches of your Scottish ancestry, and the process for you is very easy. Simply, we will request a couple of key Scottish birth dates and we will do the rest!

Kilted Cousins will research Scottish birth, marriage and death certificates from Old Parish Registers, Catholic Church records and Civil Records. We also use an extensive range of resources and sources to find records of travel, census, military and trade information. The result is your personal Scottish family tree, with details of births, marriages, deaths, places your Scottish ancestors lived and what they did for a living.

You may have it beautifully presented on a family photograph of your choice (see samples) or professionally printed on a coloured chart.

There will be a surprise in your Scottish roots somewhere. Guaranteed to generate hours of conversation!

Scottish Family History-Bespoke Service

Whatever you'd like to find out, we at Kilted Cousins thrive on investigating Scottish family history background, including Scottish military records, Scottish places, worldwide census records and all aspects of family life in Scotland.

Do you already have a Scottish family tree and want to explore one branch of your Scottish ancestry in more detail? Or perhaps you want to know more about the lifestyle someone in your family had in Scotland?

Kilted Cousins has researched family background for many clients, unearthing details about fatal accidents, such as a drowning, school records, health reports, jobs and industries. I even found an ancestor who was shot in the head over a land feud!

This type of Scottish family history information is fantastic in bringing a Scottish family tree 'to life', allowing you to imagine what it must have been like living in Scotland at the time your Scottish ancestors were here. It gives a better understanding of their lifestyles and standard of living as Scots. And may highlight a few surprising details too!


The testimonial below is from one of our satisfied clients. They were delighted with the insight they now have into their Scots ancestors’ life here.

Testimonial: Stuart and Natalie Robertson, Australia

Sir William Pearce Statue, Govan

"My husband and I have used Yvonne Cavanagh’s Kilted Cousins family history services for the last eight months.  Yvonne has been instrumental in helping us find out more about my husband’s father for his 100th birthday commemorative web site. 


Yvonne provided essential background information about Govan from 1914-1927, as well as helping us fill in important gaps in our family tree, and investigating with tremendous tenacity, gravestones for my husband’s ancestors in Glasgow. 


Yvonne has always been there to answer questions about my husband’s Scottish ancestry, and this information has been integral to successfully setting up our web site.  The web site has also been very popular with the latest generation of Robertsons."

Scottish Ancestral Tour

A journey to Scotland to find out more about your Scottish roots can be exciting!


Scotland has lots to offer and if you are planning a visit, it may be the perfect opportunity to combine the trip with a personal ancestral tour.


Maybe you are an Outlander fan. How great would it be to combine an Outlander tour with your own Scottish ancestral tour?


Kilted Cousins Family Trees works with a number of partners to help plan Scottish tours which might include visits to:


  • Places your Scottish ancestors lived or worked, e.g. Scottish shipyards
  • Graveyards to see Scottish ancestors' gravestones
  • Fabulous countryside and the best of Scotland's Places


Kilted Cousins can link you up with a Chauffeur partner to help with your planning and to make the trip extra special.


You may also wish to hire a professional Blue or Green badge tourist guide. Our partners in Eyes on Scotland, who are Scottish Tourist Guide Association approved, can further add to the experience by sharing their knowledge about Scottish history through visits to e.g. Scottish Castles, Scottish Whisky Distilleries, our stunning Scottish Lochs and other prominent landmarks. And perhaps you can even dance the night away at a Scottish Ceilidh dance!


Scotland has fantastic places to visit and exceptional scenery. An ancestral tour makes it particularly special and can bring your Scottish ancestry to life. Highly recommended!
