I am Councillor Alexander Smith; Poor Law Inspector for West Calder Parish. I decide upon lives brought to the point of dependence by illness and injury.
The Twitter feed provides a semi-regular update in real time of cases and notes as recorded in the West Calder poor law records. The tweets are unfortunately not dated, but do provide an idea of the kinds of material that can be found. The address if you wish to follow is @PoorInspector
