Scottish Highlander Photo Archive update

I've just been in touch with Adrian from the Scottish Highlander Photo Archive (www.scottishhighlanderphotoarchive.co.uk), and he's kindly given me the following update on the site's holdings:

Passed the 7,000 images online mark in January (now 7430). Several hundred military portraits taken by Paterson were returned to the archive around the same time too. None of these have been digitised yet, but there are hundreds already online from our own archive for anyone looking into their soldier forbears.

Also have access to the James Nairn Colour Collection... slowly uploading to the site, which may be of some interest. There's some early shots (1959-60) of kids at Halloween parties held at Carroll House Orphanage - www.scottishhighlanderphotoarchive.co.uk/SearchResults.aspx?q=james+s+nairn&Submit=Search

(With thanks to Adrian)


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And FindmyPast - please reinstate the original Scottish census citations on your new site.
