A 'shout-out' today for another great online resource that is interesting, informative and FREE!
The National Library of Scotland [NLS] have a great digital resource available at http://digital.nls.uk/emigration/index.html which links you to transcripts of letters and journals, and audio versions of these, along with background information and really great visual resources - drawings, photos, maps and pamphlets and much more.
This is a fascinating glimpse into the huge range of records that the NLS have and gives a real glimpse into the lives of people who left these shores to create new lives.
There is a lot of very detailed information in these pages and it is well worth 'bookmarking' to return to again and again. The website also links into the NLS Scots Abroad database which gives details of material relating to the lives of Scots and their experiences overseas.
