Founded in 1953, the Society moved into 15 Victoria Terrace in 1991. The internal walls of the property are from two phases of building vaulted arches dating from c. 1830-40 and the cellars of tenements on Johnston Terrace in 1868-9. It has been used as an ARP centre during WWII and then occupied by a confectionery manufacturer, a scientific equipment supplier, a pottery & printmaking studio, a restaurant and then home to the Scottish Genealogy Society. There will be a continuous-running video presentation on how to start your family history.
