  The following 3 photos were sent in by Yvonne Livingstone who is trying to find out who some of the people are email the secretary if you wish to get in touch with her.

Mary Simpson Wallace is front row left – she lived in Den Walk, Buckhaven – photo taken abt late 1940s. The photo below was taken at the Sawmill at the top of Den Walk. Nothing known about bottom one.







We’ve had a request from one of our members who would love some help identifying people sitting for photographs.


A large number of family photographs, many of which appear to be examples of early Kirkcaldy photographers’ work, were gifted to Margaret & her sister.  Ultimately, they hope to donate this collection to Kirkcaldy museum but are keen to identify as many people as possible in the following tintypes, cartes de visite and cabinet prints. 


With some help from Kircaldy Museum to research the photographers, using Census records & their own family tree, they have managed to date match a lot of the collection but there are a few that are proving a little more elusive.


The families being researched are the Wilson family who lived in Mid Street, Pathhead, Dysart from 1841 until 1881 and the Young family who lived nearby in Nether Street until 1871 when they moved to Cupar Mead, Dysart.


Please take a look at the piccies below and see if any of them, or the faces in them, seem familiar.  You can send any thoughts/comments/assistance to Margaret & her sister through secretary@fifefhs.org


On behalf of Margaret & her sister, thank you for taking the time to look.
