Dr Ian G Macdonald, MSc (Genealogical Studies), C.Eng, CITP, FBCS
Zoologist, Information Engineer, quality award assessor, business systems strategist, process transformer, company director and latterly genealogist, practicing professionally in a limited way. Ian is a tutor for the University of Strathclyde’s online post-graduate genealogy courses and chronicler of the Mewburn family. His genealogical interests span eastern Scotland, much of England, Poland, Canada, Australia and anywhere else that seems of interest. He publishes fairly widely and has been fortunate to win awards for it, including Aberdeen’s Bruce Henderson Award that led to the publication ofThe Alexanders of Bourtie, 1696-1886 – a gripping read. Ian is Chairman of the Register of Qualified Genealogists and Deputy Editor for the newly launched The Journal of Genealogy and Family History. He has a particular interest in seeing standards of genealogical practice being improved.
