Corona Virus Precautions

 

We at Tay Valley Family History Society wish to ensure that all our Volunteers, Members and visitors are protected as far as possible from the Corona Virus.

Previously issued guidelines on hand washing and thorough cleaning of keyboards and work surfaces, so far that has been in the main adhered to.

Government and NHS information indicates that the worst is yet to come, with ongoing recommendations being issued almost daily.

The identified high risk people are at present the over 70’s, which you will agree covers most of our Volunteers and visitors.

 The centre is now open. See Welcome page for details.

 

To this end, reluctantly the Council have decided to minimise the risk and protect you all by agreeing to close the Research Centre until further notice.

 

The Closure will be reviewed on a two weekly basis until it is deemed acceptable to re-open and hopefully this will be a short term measure.

I hope that you understand that this decision was not taken lightly but was considered necessary.

I will endeavour to keep you up to date with this issue but should you wish any further information please contact me.

Regards

Angus Gellatly

Members, various tasks such as website maintenance, membership, bookshop, research, etc. are dealt with by different members of staff who are not in the centre everyday, so when contacting the centre for any reason, be it for website entry passwords, research info, etc, please be patient. Please remember that the centre is run by volunteers in their own time.

Webmaster's Jottings 03-10-2021 When contacting centre

Tay Valley Family History Society continues our series of online talks for our members, of which this is the sixth, with a double-bill! This two-part talk is by Ron Scrimgeour, previously Deacon of the Weavers' Incorporation of Dundee. The Wark o the Weavers Part One is at https://youtu.be/hnyJ1tYaT1w and Part Two is at https://youtu.be/BAEiBUIJwz4

Part One gives a tour through the history and development of weaving in the areas of Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and North-East Fife, and the links with elsewhere, in particular Bengal. It tells how jute came to be so important here. Part Two gives much about the people involved with the Weavers' Trade, and the circumstances of their lives.

There is a Q&A zoom on this one, for which registration is available on our Members Noticeboard. Passed talks are also available on the Members Noticeboard. For access to this, you will be required to use your members access password to log in.

 Also, here is a video from David Dobson, our vice-president, promoting his new book on doing Family History, entitled "Scottish Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond". This is also on Youtube so you can view it at this link: https://youtu.be/lcxAgOFPUCU
