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
