New Record Sets Added to Hebridespeople.com


The new records are for families connected with the Isles of Harris, Berneray and St Kilda. 

From the announcement: 

The database also allows access to two further unique features - family
notes and family sheets. These take the researcher beyond research
into individual persons to research into whole families. The family
notes give a summary of the family history. They are based on the 1851
census as a datum-line, working back as far as possible – usually to
the generation born in about 1750/60, and forward as far as 1920. The
family sheets are hand-written work-sheets, compiled by Bill Lawson for
each family, showing the lines of descent in the male line, together
with cross referencing of the female line to their spouses’ family
sheets. There is also a gazetteer available, with a summarised history
of each township for those less familiar with Harris.” 


This is a pay-per-view site where you purchase and then redeem credits to view the documents.
