Whiteford Opens Peterhead Family History Fair

Friday, 2 August 2013

Local MP Eilidh Whiteford officially opened the Family History & Heritage Fair on the final day of Peterhead Scottish Week. The event, which was held in the Apex Church Centre, was judged to be a great success by the organisers.

Eilidh was asked to open the event by the Family History Society of Buchan and the day brought together organisations such as the Buchan Heritage Society, Peterhead RAF Association, Aberdeenshire Museums & Libraries and the local Registrars’ Office to provide a one-stop shop for anyone interested in genealogy and local history.

Commenting, Eilidh said:

“Ancestral tourism is becoming increasingly popular and we are already seeing an increase in that locally thanks to the efforts of the Family History Society of Buchan.

“This event, the first of its kind in Peterhead, has been a huge success and the organisers and those who took part on the day deserve congratulations for their efforts."

After opening the event, Eilidh spent around an hour touring various exhibitions chatting to the stallholders.
