Welcome to DGNHAS
Welcome to the new version of the DGNHAS website, which is more accessible using mobile devices and more easily maintained than the earlier version.
All the content of the earlier version is available here, possibly in a new form and accessed in a different way. The main difference is in searching the website and gaining information on the contents of the online Transactions using TDGNHAS index cards. See the Searching page for more information.
General feedback and information on errors or omissions are welcome. Please e-mail the webmaster using the link on the Contacts page.

Clish-Clash is the e-newsletter of the Scottish Local History Forum.
The newsletter gives recent and forthcoming news about activities in the local history community.
“Clish-clash” means “repeated gossip” in Scots, and the newsletter passes on information about local history activities.
The aim is to issue Clish-Clash bi-monthly, but this depends on the amount of information received from SLHF members and others.
