Perth and Kinross Council Archive which has been established for over 20 years. The Archive holds the records of Perth & Kinross Council and its predecessors as well as the records of individuals, families, estates, businesses and local clubs and societies. These records may be useful in researching a variety of topics including your family history, the history of the house you live in, and the rich heritage of your local area. Visitors to the Archive come from all over the world and they range from academics, students and schoolchildren, to architects, planners and lawyers, to family, local and house historians. Recent research has included Scottish society in the eighteenth century, the development of the city of Perth, the changing fortunes of a wealthy family, and the history of the ownership of a public house.

The Society of Friends of Dunkeld Cathedral was founded to stimulate interest in the Cathedral as a part of the history of Scotland. Who are the Friends? The people who care about the history, the place and the community in the 21st Century. We live in different times from when our great establishments benefited from the protection and support of individuals or families. Now, however, the warmth of support is more likely to come from groups of like-minded people with shared interests, whether these be history (secular or religious), education, architecture or landscape. All these elements are here in Dunkeld and the objectives of the Society of Friends include “the preservation of the fittings and furnishing of the Choir and stimulation of interest in the Cathedral”.

Clan Donnachaidh, which means the children of Duncan, emerged from the union of the Scottish and Pictish kingdoms and counts amongst its forebears the Kindred of St. Columba. The main clan name and that of the chiefs is Robertson, but many other names taken by those descending from the chiefs or belonging to the families who lived on clan estates and sought the chief's protection can be considered septs of the clan.

Letters Collected by the Canada Company to Encourage Emigration, 1842. In 1842 the Canada Company sent out an agent to collect statements from various settlers in the Huron Tract to use as encouragement to other emigrants. Owning a great deal of land, the Company was interested in selling it to new settlers. These letters and statements, however, do give us some insight into the lives of these new emigrants.
