A SEARCH is underway for a photo of the founder of Helensburgh, Charles Harper (1835-1888).
The Helensburgh Historical Society have made several unsuccessful enquiries and is appealing for help.
For Family History Week in July – August, the Old Mine Surgery at Helensburgh will open to the public on Sundays July 29 and August 5, 10am to 2pm.
The society is also looking for volunteers to help with the archiving of records. If you can spare a few hours a week or month to help sorting documents, filing, photocopying and scanning old photos, old newspapers call the Society’s research officer and archivist, Jenny 42942877.
The next meeting of the society will be held on July 26 at the Old Mine Surgery, Parkes Street, at 7.30pm.
