Members are reminded that the Annual General Meeting of the Tay Valley Family History Society will be held in the University of Abertay, Room 3004, Bell Street, Dundee on Wednesday, 21st May, 2014 at 7.15 pm.

Following the meeting there will be a talk by Forbes Inglis on Murders and Misdeeds - a tale of murders and public hangings in Dundee and Angus between 1765 and 1900. Forbes Inglis is a freelance writer based in Montrose. He has a wide range of writing interests and his work, both text and photographs, has appeared in newspapers and magazines in the UK, the USA and Australia.  In his home town, he contributes to the Montrose Review Gable Ender column and to Montrose FC match programmes. In addition, he is the author of three books: Phantoms and Fairies: Tales of the Supernatural in Angus and Dundee (2010); The Sea Enriches: A Gable Ender's Trawl Through Time, (2012); Murders & Misdeeds: Angus and Dundee 1765-1900 (2013).

It promises to be a most interesting evening.
