Argyll Estates Papers to be Digitized and Made Available Online

Anyone with ancestor in Tiree knows how invaluable Keith Dash's website is. He has painstakingly transcribed estate census records, OPRs and more to make tracing our Tiree ancestors easier: http://www.keithdash.net/

Keith has recently announced a new joint project that is taking place to digitize the Argyll Estate Papers with the goal of having these made available online in the future. It is anticipated that this will be a two to three year project. This is a joint project of the Argyll and Bute Council, Argyll Estates, and Dunollie House (in Oban). The Argyll Estates take in more than just Tiree, of course, and include Coll, Mull, Morvern, Kintyre, Cowal, Glencoe and points in between. Very exciting news for family historians with Argyll roots!

Here is the announcement from Keith's website:

  1. That certainly is good news. My CAMPBELL and associated families came from those areas, especially Tiree.

  2. Judy, check out the rest of Keith's site. Lots of genealogy gems on there for both Tiree and Coll.
