What is it?

The Angus People Image Index is an index to images of people embedded within local history books in Angus Archives and other Angus libraries. The people in question are from all walks of life and all parts of Angus. They range from Justices of the Peace, businessmen, members of Masonic Lodges and other societies to ministers, schoolteachers, soldiers, and railway station guards from the past 150 years. Women are not as well represented but there is a good sprinkling of nurses, schoolteachers, club members and lady benefactors.

Why is it useful?

By using this index you may find a long lost ancestor in a surprising location or discover a new fact. The index frequently gives a summary of biographical material contained within the original source.

What doesn't it cover?

The Index is designed to complement the extensive Angus Archives photographic collection which has not yet been indexed. There will be one major update every year. The card index version of the Angus People Image Index in the Angus Archive search room will be continually updated.
