I’ve just come across the Scottish Distributed Digital Library: a collection of links to digitised sounds, images and texts with Scottish themes on the internet.
The collection includes books, photographs, paintings, drawings and websites covering such diverse subjects as
- Aberdeen-built ships
- Ayrshire working lives photographs
- Hand drawn maps of Cawdor parish dating from 1782
- The Dictionary of Scottish Architects
- Architectural plans and drawings
- Photographs of Glasgow people and places
- More maps than you can shake a stick at
and much much more!
Go and have a look at http://scone.strath.ac.uk/sddl/index.cfm – I’m sure you’ll find something relevant to your own family history.
