Tahitia McCabe is Head of Strathclyde Institute of Genealogical Studies and course leader on the highly regarded MSc in Genealogical Studies. Tahitia is also supervisor on the PhD in History with Genealogical Studies and a lead educator on the free online course ‘Genealogy: Researching Your Family Tree’.
I’m Tahitia McCabe and I live in Glasgow and am an American by birth - I moved to the UK twenty years ago on an academic fellowship (a Fulbright). My personal areas of research include emigration and immigration and the history of Americans in Scotland. My previous roles as a librarian have included working in public, state, special and university libraries, most recently at the University of Glasgow History of Art departmental library. I am also a very part time PhD candidate here at the University and am researching Americans resident in Scotland from 1850-1901.
I am Head of the newly created Strathclyde Institute of Genealogical Studies which involves shaping the long-term development of the courses and the research we do, marketing and student recruitment, academic quality control and other issues. I am also a tutor on the PG Diploma and MSc levels of the Programme as well as leading the part time PG Certificate which begins in October. I completed the Certificate 15 years ago and did the Diploma 14 years ago - it was a lot of work with many late nights but the sheer amount that I learned made all the time spent in front of the computer worthwhile. My master’s degree was also done online but through Syracuse University in New York State (it was in Library Science)
