Declaration of Arbroath Family History Project Exhibition

The exhibition will display biographies, genealogical charts and coats of arms of 16 individuals associated with the Declaration, as well as information on another 33 ‘signatories.’ It will also present the findings of genetic genealogy research, using DNA test results and documentary evidence. The aim is to find living descendants of the ‘signatories’ who knew nothing about their medieval ancestry, and discover how DNA can reveal more about these unknown ancestries.
The research is being carried out by staff and postgraduate students of the University of Strathclyde’s Genealogical Studies Postgraduate Programme and is funded by the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy.

Thank You to Our Funders
