Hopefully the opening times will improve as and when we get more volunteers
We will do our best to help patrons, who wish to visit the centre on the days when we are not open.

Family History Centre

We can only process orders placed before 14th December 2021, in time for Christmas.
Any orders placed after the date above will be processed after the 10th January 2022
We are still not in a position to open to the public, as of today 21/08/2020.
We are however able to process online orders, via our Website
The website is secure and providing we have the items you require in stock, they will be dispatched to you by post.
We are sorry we cannot open the Centre to the public, as of yet, however as things change, we hope that it will not be too long before we can resume public access.
Again, thank you for your patience, in this matter.
As the Scottish Government starts to ease restrictions on shops and business opening again, we are not currently in a position to reopen the Centre to the public.
Once we have assessed the requirements for social distancing and put in place the necessary equipment to keep both our staff and members of the public safe, we will update this website, to advise everyone.
Thank you for your patience and we look forward in the future to welcoming you back.
