Sleat kirk session records - Who Do You Think You Are?

A good episode of Who Do You Think You Are? tonight, with the revelation of a set of kirk session records for the parish of Sleat on Skye still held in private hands.

The NAS catalogue only has records listed in its catalogue for 1882-1914 for Sleat session records - I hope they might try to follow this up, if they haven't already done so, to see whether the records could be borrowed for possible conservation and/or digitisation! Clearly the records are privately owned, and there is no obligation to loan them to the archive - but for anyone with similar records gathering dust somewhere, please do think about contacting your local archive or the NAS in Edinburgh to see whether copies might be obtained.

If you do, I'm sure Scotland will love you even more than it already does...! :)
