Family History Archive

The Gatehouse Family and Local History Archive, a new community resource, is seeking material relating to local or family history in and around Gatehouse. Material could include old photographs, postcards, letters, family papers, or books and pamphlets relating to Galloway. We would welcome material no longer required by the owners as well as access to material, both images and documents, for digital copying.

The Archive will be based in the YMCA Drop-in Centre in Digby Street and once established will be open to both the community and visitors. As well as providing a developing resource of local material the Archive will offer access to established local and national resources, search facilities, the internet, and advice. If you would like to know more or can offer any material that could become part of the resource, please telephone: 01557 814620.
