    If you have any information on someone who died during the conflicts and who you would like recorded in the Benarty record please get the information to us before the 31st of July as this is the cut off date and anything received after this date will not be record in the area record.


  • New Additions to Site

    I have added a few new photos over the past couple of days and will be adding more shortly. The photos come from the Murphy and Ross Families.

    I have also added a new document called Ballingry Parish History this document comes from Dr Simon Taylor’s series of books entitled Place Names of Fife. Dr Taylor has kindly given us permission to use the extract relating to Ballingry on our site and can be found by going to Historical Information then Ballingry then Ballingry Parish History or by clicking here

    Finally if you have any photos or documents which are suitable to be place on our site please contact me.

  • New Video Added

    A new video of Lochore House Youth Club has been added to the Videos Page. The film is another cine film from Jackie Scott’s archive and is entitled ‘Hamilton Party’. It is fitting that last person seen on the film at 13m 59s is Jackie himself.

    I hope you enjoy it.
