The North East of Scotland is fortunate in having a number of excellent museums, archives, local studies centres and voluntary organisations that are run by knowledgeable staff who are happy to advise you with your research. These repositories, their contact details and a brief guide to their holdings are listed below:  some, like the Gordon Highlanders’ Museum and the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses, have their own special area of interest while others, such as Aberdeen City & Aberdeenshire Archives, hold material dating back many centuries, drawn from a wide variety of sources.
