Scotland's First family history centre opens





Scotland's first purpose-built centre for researching ancestral history is due to be opened by the first minister.

It is hoped the Burns Monument Centre in Kilmarnock will make it easier for people to trace their family tree.

The facility has had a £5m facelift and now brings together an archive centre, registration service, local and family history under one roof.

The Homecoming programme aims to attract expatriates back to Scotland to celebrate the country's culture and heritage.
