Discover my Past Scotland issue 20 on sale

The June issue of Discover my Past Scotland (issue 20) is now available to download in PDF format or to read online at www.discovermypast.co.uk. There's whale hunting in the deep and spirit hunting in the dark!

This month, John Hannavy counts the cost of living in Victorian Scotland, Caroline Makein looks at testaments and inventories, Wendy Glass looks at the whaling industry, Sue Wilkes investigates the history of the Douglas family, Ruth Symes looks at Edinburgh in the 1830s, and Katie Howard goes to Alloa to look for family history resources. As well as the regular news and reviews, yours truly well and truly loses the plot this month and goes ghosthunting with my wife at Inveraray Jail - did things go bump in the night or did we just keep bumping into things?!

There's all the usual events, Q&As, Bygone Days and more.

Forget the ghosthunting, if you're not convinced to have a look for just £2.50, I'll be REALLY scared!
