  • Access to the Volunteer Research Team

As its name implies, this network of enthusiastic volunteers give of their time voluntarily  during their already busy lives. A team structure covers individual parishes and is coordinated by Margaret Mackay.  We also have specialist members who will look for information in the subject area of their own research – e.g. military history. They are enthusiastic and willing but they cannot do your family tree for you – you need to be as specific as possible with information you supply. There will be a small charge and extraneous expenses for photocopying , certificates etc. will also need to be borne by the person requesting information. This service is for members only and applications need to be in writing. Please go to the Research Page for the scale of charges and to download an application form if you are a member.
