Further links

My probings into local history have progressed further in recent months, and I’m copying a stack of links into this post. I am most endebted to those who were willing to assist me, on island and off - and particularly the patient staff at Stornoway library who, for a while, were loading microfilms for me onto that temperamental machine at the back on a daily basis. A special mention is deserving for Direcleit, a blogger with family links to the Long Island, who has been very patient with me whilst I was tagging along for some of the way, learning additional research skills.
