We know how important it is to start the week on a positive note. Every Monday, we'll be sharing a quote from history which we hope will encourage or inspire you as you continue your family history journey!

Today's quote comes courtesy of the man of the night:

"Hope Springs Exulting on Triumphant Wing."

- Robert Burns

You can discover more about the world Robert Burns lived in, in our new Scottish Registers and Records collection, released as part of last week's Findmypast Fridays
