Newspapers

Newspapers are a wonderful resource for local history.
With such important people in our parish over the centuries, we get quite a number of hits when we search through new archives.
Over the years we have taken advantage of access to a variety of sources, and have collected a number of useful records.

The Times newspaper archive
The Scotsman newspaper archive
