What’s new in Angus Archives
Explore Your Archive Day
Join us for Explore Your Archive Day at Angus Archives on Saturday 23 November between 10am-4pm. We’ll be launching our War Stories Collection of World War One local history material and have associated home front material on show for you to explore. The War Stories collection is a seed collection of stories about your Angus ancestors on the Western Front and on the Home Front. Please help us to grow this collection by donating a copy of your ancestor’s story. Bring along photographs and material for us to scan and return so ancestor can become part of this legacy collection.
In addition, we will be revealing the archive team’s favourite items from across the collections, ensuring an eclectic selection on show on the day.
We’ll have a few crafty activities for children too in addition to the usual refreshments. The event is free.
We’re on the mobile!
Earlier in the week we will be out and about on the mobile library. We’ll be taking a small selection of archival material with us to show you what your archive holds for you. We’ll be at the following venues:
