CHURCH ARCHIVES ARE RETURNED TO THE HIGHLANDS

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

Around 1,000 volumes of Church of Scotland archives have recently been transferred from the National Archives of Scotland in Edinburgh to the Highland Archive and Registration Centre in Inverness. The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Right Reverend Bill Hewitt, marked the importance of the return of volumes dating from the 1640s to the 20th century covering parishes in the presbyteries of Inverness, Ross, Sutherland, Lochcarron Skye, and part of Moray. The occasion of the Moderator’s visit was marked by the presentation to the Archive Service of the earliest surviving volume of Kirk Session minutes from St Columba High Church, Inverness. The volume presented dates from 1843, the year of the Disruption. Mr Hewitt said: “It is with great pleasure that we entrust the records of the Church of Scotland and St Columba High Church to the Highland Archives. “I am certain that locals and visitors to Inverness
“I am certain that locals and visitors to Inverness and the Highlands will be delighted to use them.
“We are pleased not just for the Church but also for the community that these records are being returned to the Highlands.”
