At Perth & Kinross Council's "Securing the Future Awards" at Perth Concert Hall last night Family History Services received a silver award as one of the shortlisted submissions in the "Improving Services through Partnership" category. To our delight we then received the prestigious Provost's Award as his choice from all the entries shortlisted under five categories.
The project has involved staff from Perth & Kinross Council Archive, Local Studies, Registration Services, Bereavement Services, Arts & Heritage and the Black Watch Museum. One of the major achievements has been the publication of Keekin for Kin - Researching your Family History in Perth and Kinross. There is also a Genealogy Group representing all the partners which organises events like the Family History Days we have held in recent years.
