Scotland's First Family History Centre Opens
The facility has had a £5m facelift and now brings together an archive centre, registration service, local and family history under one roof. Alex Salmond will open it in Scotland's Homecoming year and the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns' birth.
The Homecoming programme aims to attract expatriates back to Scotland to celebrate the country's culture and heritage. It is hoped some of the estimated 40m people around the world who can claim Scottish roots will use the new centre to research their ancestors. The facility has been created in the town's Kay Park and is built around a statue of Burns.
