We currently have a number of project which are on-going, the largest and most important is to scan, identify and register every picture in all the photograph albums and loose pictures that have been donated to us. As there are well over 100 albums, each with numerous photographs this is a bit like painting the Forth Road Bridge but a vital job if we are to make our resources more available to those researching family history as well as historians in years to come.
Now that this website is ‘up and running’, we are keen to extend the ‘Time Line’, which requires research and some literary skills if we are to include other less well known aspects of our history. Other tasks which our volunteers are involved with include sorting out and checking our inventory of artefacts and documents, helping to conserve them where necessary (paper as well as material) and being part of the team to assist with the opening of the museum at weekends and Bank Holidays.
If you can spare the time and are interested in helping us, we would love to hear from you.
