Hebridean Connections montage
Welcome to the Hebridean Connections website… NMcRitchie
Here you will find nearly 24,000 records relating to the genealogy, history, traditions, culture and archaeology of the Western Isles (or Outer Hebrides), a chain of islands off the west coast of Scotland. The material on the website is drawn from the collections of local historical societies (the comainn eachdraidh), with generous input from Hebridean descendants around the world. Currently it covers the areas of Uig, Bernera, Kinloch, Pairc and Carloway in Lewis, and Berneray in the Sound of Harris.

With the aid of funding from the Scottish Government’s People & Communities Fund, Highlands & Islands Enterprise, and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, the project is now (2013) entering a new phase in its development. This will see geographical coverage being expanded significantly. Find out more on our blog at http://blog.hebrideanconnections.com, or visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/hebrideanconnections.
