Other local history societies -update autumn 2016

We have a variety of local history societies who run winter talks, and a new family history group in Oban.

The Rockfield Centre has a heritage hunters group, building on the Oral History project who have created several Oban heritage walks, which will be happening again as part of the Oban Winter Festival on the 26 November

Oban & Lorn family history society has just been formed to bring together folk interested in their genealogy where we can meet and learn from each other and other speakers.
