Revised Opening Times

Due to the ongoing problems with a lack of volunteers to man the Centre daily from Monday to Friday.

Unfortunately, we have had to reduced at the moment to Thursdays only.

Thursdays 10am to 4pm

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. 

Telephone 01779 239652 and leave a message or you can email us on info@buchanroots.scot 

We will get back to you as soon as possible.

(messages and emails are checked Thursdays) 

If you are interested in Family History, and have some time to spare,

and would like to become a volunteer please contact us. 

Help us to help others discover their ancestors.

Centre Closure Update

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.

Centre Closure Update

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.


Online Orders

Covid-19 Virus Update

Due to the current situation regarding the Covid-19 Virus, we are currently unable to fulfill online orders of the Society’s products.

If you have recently placed an order online, we will do our best to complete your order as soon as possible, however our volunteers are mostly in the “at risk” category for this virus.

When it is safe for our volunteers to resume safe working, we will send your products as soon as possible. We hope you will bear with us during these uncertain times.

Thank you.
