  1. We recently were on a bus tour of Scotland. As luck would have it, our hotel turned out to be only a block from the National Archives in Edinburgh. Having some free time, we thought it worth a try to see if we could get in to do some research. We were greeted warmly and shown to the historical section where a wonderful lady by the name of Virginia Miller spent an hour helping us look for information on my 5th great-grandfather, a Covenanter, who was shipped from the Leith Tolbooth to America in 1685. We found proof that he was held a prisoner at Leith in the records of the Privy Council. We also found drawings of the old Tolbooth. Luck, opportunity and preparation works!!
