This is an incredible compilation of information extracted from The Weekly News of Dundee pertaining to the city of Perth and to the various civil divisions of Perthshire.
Written for a newspaper audience, it is a treasure trove of historical and genealogical information on literally hundreds of families who were either native to Perthshire or who held important lands and estates within the county. To mention a few, Kinnoul and the Erskines; Scone and the Gowrie Family; The Mowbrays; Methven Castle and Bruce; The Lawrences and Oliphants of Gask; The Ruthvens; The Hays of Aberdalgie; The Wemyss Family of Rhynd; and The Blairs of Balthayook. There is an enormous amount of Pictish material, as well as extensive information on the Celtic Christian church and the Culdees of Abernethy and other fabled sites.
Originally published as a 462 page book in 1880. This book has been scanned and put onto CD. The images can be browsed, enlarged and printed if required. But please note: it is not searchable.
