I spent some time yesterday, in Strathconon, with the Session Clerk of the Contin Church of Scotland who confirmed that the Church Records of his church, along with most other C of S churches, are with the NLS in Edinburgh.

As said earlier, have a look at the FreeCEN website, there are quite a few records for the MacGregor family in that area.

For instance....."MACGRIGOR (sic), Piece SCT1841/65, Fodderty Parish - Ross and Cromarty, ED5, Folio-0, Page 15.....

"MACGRIGOR, Alexander........" plus nine others.

The cottages were demolished in the sixties and there is now a field of barley waving in the breeze!


In an effort to get a definitive consensus of opinion on the interpretation of the various documents from which you are quoting, would you please scan and post them?



It's a crofting area on the south shore of Loch Torridon between Fearnbeg and Kenmore.

Glamorganshire Lookup Requests / Re: Aberfan Inquiry Plan.

Many thanks for your reply and the links to the two sources of information. Much appreciated.

I was aware of these already but I was hoping that someone would have something tucked away they could pass on to me or perhaps point me to something which I could access online.

I'll contact the Methyr Library tomorrow to see if they can take my query further by way of some online access.

Glamorganshire Lookup Requests / Aberfan Inquiry Plan.
« on: Wednesday 05 July 17 20:05 BST (UK)  »
I 'm hoping that some kind member can help me obtain a copy of a newspaper cutting (or photo) showing the interior of the building used for the Aberfan Inquiry in October 1966.
I was a cartographer working with the Ordnance Survey when we were directed to make detailed plans showing the devastation caused by the landslip that claimed so many young lives.
I also had the privilege of having to draw a very large plan (c. 8' x6') which was used as a backdrop on the wall behind the "top table".

I used to have a newspaper cutting which was from one of the papers of the day but unfortunately over the years I have misplaced it. I know that all the papers and plans are in the safe keeping of the Glamorgan Archives as I have been in touch with them, but as I live about 500 miles away I am not able to make the journey down. They did say that they could carry out a search for me but the cost involved would be considerable bearing in mind the amount of material they have.

I am hoping that someone may have some photos or cuttings showing the interior of the venue which shows my plan in the background or may be a regular user of the Archives?

This quest was started by the tv broadcast which was screened last year to commemorate the disaster.

I'm attaching an image of the plan which I was able to get off the "paused" picture on the tv.
