Get your free copy of Keith Gregson's book, exploring the links between Shetland and the north east of England.

During the pandemic, Keith Gregson, a regular author on our sister title Family Tree, decided to give away his online book on the links between the north east of England and Shetland, called From Shetland to Keel Square.

Keith has kindly extended the offer to celebrate Scottish Family History Month. The book will be of interest to anyone with north east or Shetland ancestry or a general interest in maritime affairs - and particularly the merchant navy.

The ruined croft at 'The Taing of Houss' on Burra Isle, Shetland, the address from which Keith's great-grandfather was married in 1878

Keith said: 'When people have asked for a copy so far they have got back to me with information useful to my own family history research'.

Copies can be arranged by contacting Keith by e-mail or if encountering problems via his website.
