The latest issue of History Scotland magazine has our #StoryOfOurStreet challenge launch - with great advice for starting your local history project. Read on to see what's included.
What is #StoryOfOurStreet?
#StoryOfOurStreet is a new local history project that invites everyone, wherever in the world they live, to explore the history of their street, or perhaps the street where their ancestors lived.
We've released a free PDF checklist (get your copy when you sign up for our free email here) and research kit (download here - £1.99 or 99p for magazine subscribers). Now, in each issue of History Scotland magazine we'll be bringing you:
- Street history advice from the experts
- Mini challenges to help you explore your street's history
- Finds, photos and stories from #StoryOfOurStreet contributors
What's in July/August History Scotland?
Our July/August issue launches #StoryOfOurStreet, as Neil McLennan explains the background to the project and takes a look at how street names and places names can give you valuable clues about your area's past.
PLUS we have expert advice from National Library of Scotland... and our top 5 online resources for getting started.
