CROMAR HISTORY GROUP : Seeing through the mists of time

The Cromar History Group is a group of people interested in learning about and preserving local history and making it accessible to everyone. To find out more about what we do and to join us, see Aims.

We run a series of History talks open to the public every winter and dates and details for these are shown on our Talks page. This year’s programme will be starting in October.

Every year, we organise visits during the summer to interesting historical sites.To ensure numbers are manageable, these are open to members only and their invited guests.

11 Oct. on Craigievar Castle

We publish a well regarded magazine on local history called “Echoes from Cromar’s Past” every year. For details of how to submit relevant material to this or buy back copies, see Publications.

If you are looking to search our archives for details of your ancestors or submit material to our archives, then go to our Archives pages.

We undertake projects from time to time, identified and led by members of the Society. Our most recent project was to put our archives on line. Members also organise visits to historic sites locally. For full details see our Members’ page.
