West Lochaber genealogy database

The organisers of Arisaig's Highland games are hoping to create a new genealogical database for emigrants from West Lochaber who sailed aboard vessels such as the Hector, Lovely Nelly and Dove.

A meeting will be held in Astley Hall, Arisaig, on 23rd November to discuss the project. If successful the database will be ready in time for An Tilleadh 2014 - Taobh an lar Lochabair (West Lochaber's Homecoming event).
