Discover my Past Scotland issue 8 on sale

The July 2009 issue of Discover my Past Scotland is now on sale at, with all the usual goodies and more.

In this month's magazine Wendy Glass gives a sneak preview at the biggest clan event ever to be held in Scotland - the Gathering - whilst Jenny Swanson gets into the spirit with an article on Highland dancing. John Hannavay looks at the history of Scottish sports, Sue Wilkes explores the capital city of Edinburgh, whilst Christina Green provides some top tips on setting out on your family history research.

Yours truly also contributes with two articles, one on the history of the Scottish forestry industry, the other on how Scottish family history societies can help with your research, including interviews with Jean Shirer of Aberdeen and North East Scotland FHS and Anne Allan from the FHS of Buchan. There's also the regular news and library columns, expert Q & As, events listings in Scotland, Bygone Days, Homecoming Happenings, and more.

All of that for £2.50? You're kidding....!

Also keep an eye out next month for the special one off print edition of Discover my Past Scotland, exclusively available at the Gathering event in Edinburgh. More details on that soon!
