Statistical Accounts of Scotland now on Twitter

The good folks of EDINA have now created a new Twitter page for the Statistical Accounts of Scotland, and each day will be tweeting select entries. After the ScotlandsPeople website, this is one of the most important resources online, hosted at http://stat-acc-scot.edina.ac.uk/sas/sas.asp?action=public&passback= The first two accounts were recorded in the 1790s and the 1830/40s and describe life in each parish, with a great deal of useful info to help build up the social historical landscape within which your ancestors lived. Unmissable.

The Twitter feed is at http://twitter.com/statacc
