The Scottish GENES posts will remain online as an archive of Scottish genealogical news from 2007-2011. Alba - agus Scottish GENES - gu bràth!
Sarah Egan of Comann Eachdraidh Uig has placed an account online of spiritual life in the parish of Uig on Lewis in 1810, as taken from "The Story of a Lewis Catechist", the history of Angus Maciver of Reef (1799-1850). The account is at www.ceuig.com/archives/3011 and is well worth reading for the apparent 'ungodliness' of the minister (Hugh Munro 1778-1823) and his flock, at least as perceived by the writer.
Personally I don't think there's enough whisky served at religious events...! lol
