Friends of the Argyll Papers Launches Website

Back a couple of months ago, the Duke of Argyll won a grant from the Heritage Lottery fund towards the preservation, conservation and digitization of the Argyll estate papers. This will provide a wealth of genealogical data for anyone with Scottish ancestors from Argyll, including the western Isles. 

This extensive collection of papers is being catalogued and made available to researchers in Cherry Park, the building near Inverary Castle which houses the vast collection of estate papers. 

You can stay up to date on the progress of the work being done to preserve, conserve, catalogue and digitize this vast collection through the website of the Friends of the Argyll Papers:

  1. I will be watching this with great interest. I received some wonderful information from these papers many years ago (when the only way to do Scottish research from Australia was by writing letters), and I'm sure there are more details just waiting for me to find them.
