Mapping Memories to Women in Scotland

There is an ongoing project called Mapping Memories to Women in Scotland. Their goal is to record all the memorials throughout the whole of Scotland that remember the achievements and lives of Scottish women.

There is a map that shows the memorials that have been found so far and an A-Z list of the women who have been found.

They are asking for help in finding out more about some of the women listed on the memorials. There is a project with Girlguiding Scotland to see if they can help add to the database.

Maybe one of them is your ancestor? Maybe you can help them find out more.

If you would like to assist the project you can find out more here.

    I do not know of an Scottish connections in my family but this sounds like a terrific project. As a life long Girl Scout, it is nice to see the Girl Guides are helping with it.

    I agree Colleen. I was in the Girl Guides as well and it is nice to see they are active in preserving the history of their communities.
