Why is there nothing on ... ?
We receive a lot of email along these lines. Why isn't so and so included? Why is there no material on such and such a place? Simple - resources. We have achieved something but could do much more. The hundred articles should become one thousand. The 4700 people in the database could grow to ten times that. The gazetteer and mapping is a project in itself. We want to make the site more accessible to schoolchildren in Scotland and the diaspora and include material they produce. Eventually we would like a physical presence: a museum and archive.
To do this we need money. We have no public funding and no budget to employ even a part-time fundraiser. Your donation, however small, or some pressure for funding on an organisation you belong to, can help the project move forward and provide both a fitting remembrance for the Clearances and a forum for better informed research.
By cheques, cash or credit card, online or by post, directly to us or in conjunction with Trees for Life, you can help.
