Highland Family History Society - Frequently Asked Questions

Services offered, and not offered, by the Society


03. How can I use the HFHS library resources in my research?

In person only, I'm afraid. Show your membership card to the Reference Librarian in the Farraline Park Library in Inverness and ask the to be allowed upstairs to the HFHS collection.

04. Does the Society provide help with 'look-ups' for out of town members?

Not normally, although some members (including Mrs Barrie Tulloch of the Committee) may well be able to offer some such, given a polite request, with as much detail as possible of what work has already been done and which records searched, and sufficient return postage.

05. How useful is the HFHS Journal in my research?

Society members use the Journal for offers of research barter to connect with researchers elsewhere in the world for mutual back-scratching. The Journal also publishes queries both specific and general, and articles which often stimulate correspondence between the writers and members with the same interests.

06. Do you accept queries for the HFHS Journal from non-members?

Yes, but at the cost of one pound sterling - members no charge

09. Is the Society intending to have members' interests on-line on the web?

Not on the horizon yet.
