Friends of Dundee City Archives

About this Organisation

The Friends of Dundee City Archives (FDCA) is a registered Scottish Charity which was established in 1989 to support the work of the City Council's Archive Service.

An important aim of the group is to raise public awareness of the work of the Archives’ office and of the importance of preserving documents which may be of value to historians in future years. Money raised from members’ subscriptions and other activities has helped to purchase important historical papers that would otherwise have been lost to the City and so has contributed to the preservation of Dundee’s documentary heritage.

The Friends arrange activities throughout the year, most notably a long-running series of monthly lunchtime talks on topics of local historical interest. Members also take part in indexing projects at the City Archives, the results of which can be viewed on the FDCA website.
