Ancestral portraits from the early 20th Century
Surnames listed: 677
The Scottish Highlander Photo Archive (SHPA) will eventually see almost 40,000 portraits accessible online, along
with the basic information that is available identifying the individuals, eg: "MacGregor, Hill Street, Tain." The
database will enable Scottish expatriates and descendants the world over, who are interested in their family
history, to search the archive for family matches and/or likeness and be able to buy images in print or
electronic form. There is also a photo library
service for publishers who wish to use images in their
books, or newspapers.
The SHPA also provides a forum for family genealogists to
comment on or to identify people in the photographs of the
collection. You must register and be logged
in to access the forum, and visitors can
even submit photographs of their own
for comment or research purposes.
The SHPA - helping you
to visualize your heritage.
