Capital Collections

Most cities, as well as national archives, have collections of images, often photographs, that can enhance you own family history. The presentation at BIFHSGO's monthly meeting on Saturday was brought to life by images from a collection of paintings held by Library and Archives Canada.

Edinburgh City Libraries and Information Services illustrates the historical and cultural life of Edinburgh, Scotland and the Scots through an image library which includes a selection of photographs, drawings, watercolours and engravings.

You can search by keyword, or scan themed exhibitions. An innovative approach is exhibitions, just three images, the personal choice of images from the collection by significant people (celebrities) connected with the City.
