Banff & Buchan MP Dr Eilidh Whiteford has praised the Family History Society of Buchan on their initiative after attending the official opening of their new resource centre overlooking Peterhead Harbour.
The local MP was invited to attend the official opening yesterday (Saturday) which was performed by Peterhead Port Authority Chief Executive John Wallace.
Commenting, Eilidh said:
“Family history and genealogical research is becoming increasingly popular and is becoming an important part of local tourism.
“This fantastic new facility is a credit to the hard work of the volunteers who have taken the Society forward from its formation just a few short years ago.
“I congratulate the Family History Society of Buchan on their impressive facility and the resources within and I’m sure that it will become an important stopping-off point for visitors to the town.”
