Dear Member

I hope that you are staying healthy and enjoying the lovely weather?

I am attaching information about the speakers and topics at the SAFHS 2021 conference in April. I remember telling you that I was hoping to attend the SAFHS Conference for the first time last year but of course I made that comment before the Coronavirus pandemic and therefore the conference did not take place!

Their Press Release with details of the conference and links to their Facebook, Twitter and Webpage are here SAFHS Press Release

Details of the Morning Session are here SAFHS Morning Session

Details of the Afternoon Session are here SAFHS Afternoon Session

I saw that Robert Cathcart from Skelmorie has produced a brand new book 'A Timeline of a Coastline'. I bought a copy on Amazon and it has a whole lot of information about Fairlie, Largs, Skelmorlie, Inverkip and Wemyss Bay. It is the sort of book you can dip in and out of so it might be of interest to some of you.

I have also been informed that Kirk Session Records are now available on Scotland's People. I haven't tried to access them myself but if you manage to do so successfully please let me know how you get on.

I hope that you enjoyed our spring edition of NAFHS Journal? If you did not receive your copy please contact Anne Cowgill at anne_cowgill@yahoo.co.uk

With best wishes, Fiona Williamson
