The aim of the month is to increase awareness of local history, promote history in general to the local community and encourage all members of the community to participate.

Activities happen across the UK and include trips, library exhibitions and local lectures.  It is a great way for groups to highlight local history and for local people to get involved.

It is a perfect opportunity to visit the John Gray Centre, the new home of the East Lothian Local History Centre. Although based in Haddington, it holds records relating to the whole of East Lothian: from Dirleton to Whittingehame, and Musselburgh to Oldhamstocks.

Whether you’re doing family history research, writing a local history book or want to find out who once lived in your house, the John Gray Centre should be the first place you visit.

Further details on our services can be found via the website , including a new online catalogue that shows you the materials that can be accessed when you visit.
