10 January (please note this will be an exploratory afternoon, 2-4pm, in Cupar Library)

Entitled Family History is Fun, our Committee will guide you on a voyage of discovery through the resources that Cupar Library has to offer – from the publications to the card indexes & the daunting computers and microfiche readers.  We will also show you what is on offer from the Fife Family History Society Research Room including our books & CDs available for sale.   We will have the room, and the computers, to ourselves so, after the initial tour, can take the time to explore with you, guide you and possibly make suggestions for further research. This is a FREE event and is open to all.  No refreshments available at this meeting.

14 Feb - Andrew Nicol of Scotland's Places - "Connecting people and places through time" Andrew is currently Development Manager at Historic Environment Scotland, working in the Archives group and overseeing the continued development of Scran.

It has a wealth of information for family and local history research and this talk will explore how you can put that to good use.
