Archive records that have relevance to the Outer Hebrides are to be found across the Western Isles. These records are kept with local government, businesses, churches, charity groups, historical societies and private individuals. Records are also kept in Inverness, Edinburgh, Glasgow and further afield.   

Later in 2012, an online database of the records held will be launched to provide easier access and better knowledge on where these records are.

The records that have been catalogued by Tasglann nan Eilean Siar can be seen below.

For more information on these records, please contact the Tasglann.
