Interested in Scottish heritage, family or local history?

The Scottish Local History Forum is the umbrella organisation for all individuals and organisations interested in local history in Scotland. It publishes a journal three times a year, organises an annual conference in the autumn, campaigns on behalf of local history, compiles occasional reference works, and generally keeps those involved in local history in touch with Scottish activities.

  • Do you want to know more about local history in Scotland?
  • Are you a member of a local history society?
  • Would you like to know more about historical sources?
  • Would you like to write for a popular local history journal?
