Tay Valley Family Historian No. 80 June 2008

The latest issue of the Tay Valley Family Historian, produced by the Tay Valley Family History Society (, has just come through my letterbox, and it is a cracker. There are articles on the Battle of Rorke's Drift, a Perthshire murder, the Kirk O' the Muir in Kinclaven, the Tayside Police Museum, the lost Perthshire village of Strelitz, Dundee asylums, and more.

I was previously a member of TVFHS, and had always been disappointed at the coverage of Perthshire (my ancestral patch), but this issue really fairly reflects the geographic area covered by the society. The journal has also recently undergone something of a revamp, and in terms of quality, I think it is fair to say that it is by far the slickest on the bookshelf just now, printed as it is in full colour, and at an impressive 64 pages.

Copies can be obtained either through society membership, or by contacting
