Highland Archive Centre 10th Anniversary

From Highland Archive (

Highland Archive Centre 10th Anniversary

2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the Highland Archive Centre and we will be holding an event on 23rd November to mark this (details to follow in our next full newsletter!).

In the run up to the event we would like to gather a collection of words that people associate with archives, heritage, family history, genealogy, and all things related! We are asking our social media followers, searchroom users, depositors, event attendees, staff and other archive professionals to contribute words which will then form part of a piece of artwork.

For some people archives provide reliable historical information which enables them to carry out their job, for others they provide a way of educating and inspiring young people about our past, present and future. Some use archives to reminisce about places and people and others use them to discover their roots. If you have any words which sum up archives, family history or the Highland Archive Centre for you, please let us know using any of the means listed below. We're excited to hear all the different things that people come up with - we know how much archives matter to so many people.

Postal Address: The Highland Archive Centre, Bught Road, Inverness, IV3 5SS
