My talk, today, about Useful Free Websites for Family History Research will be taking place as planned in the Volunteer Hall, St John Street, Galashiels, TD1 3JX.
There will also be an exhibition of photographs that will help you date your own
photographs. This exhibition is based on a collection of 19th century
photos donated to the society by Douglas Bain and collated and researched by
Ian and Morag Carter and laminated by Davina Smart.
Unlike many people in Cumbria, Dumfriesshire, and other parts of Scotland, the Borders seems to have escaped most of the snow.
The Met Office website says that no severe weather warnings have been issued for soth-west Scotland, Lothian or the Borders.
Main roads to Galashiels are free of snow, though there may be the remnants of snow on roadsides.
The traffic cameras at Soutra, Earlston, Hawick, Terrona, Houndwood, Carter Bar and Mosspaul all show snow-free roads.
There's no snow at St Boswells though the Eildon Hills look very pretty with their scattering of snow from last week,
It is still cold and the strong winds have eased a bit.
So I hope to see you at today's talk but I quite understand if you don't feel like travelling to Galashiels.
Please don't travel if the conditions are worse where you are and please don't take risks.
