The group’s website has plenty of information on tracing Dundee ancestors and discovering bygone Dundee, with sections on education, poorhouses, church records, Dundee kirkyards and Dundee in wartime.

Membership is £5 adult/ £4 concession/£1 student/unwaged and members can volunteer for a number of tasks including indexing, research, publicity and finding new material.
