Electric Scotland update

Two new books are being transcribed for the Electric Scotland site at www.electricscotland.com. These are Reminiscences of Dollar, Tillicoultry and other Districts adjoining the Ochils with Notes on Progress, Scientific Discovery, and Invention of New Spinning Machinery, during the last Hundred Years, by William Gibson (1883), and More Adventures in Kilt and Khaki: Sketches of the Glasgow Highlanders and others in France by Thomas M. Lyon (1917).

In his latest newsletter at
www.scotchat.org/showthread.php?t=295 the site's supremo, Alastair McIntyre, has clearly been having a bad week following the installation of Windows 7; on a brighter note, Scottish born Alastair has now become a fully fledged Canadian citizen, following a swearing in ceremony in Windsor - a huge congratulations to Alastair! Keep an eye out for an interview with Alastair in next month's Discover my Past Scotland.
