The museum has a library of old photographs and documents about the local area. However, there is currently no online index to this collection. As the museum is staffed by volunteers, we suggest that, if you have a family history enquiry, you send us the details in advance of your visit as the volunteer on duty may not be in a position to answer your questions. Details of births, marriages, and deaths in Scotland can be searched online at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk. Many old photographs of local people and their homes and businesses can be found on the Alford Images website which is now managed by the museum.
