Genealogist Margaret Thorburn has gifted to Forfar Library the results of her research into local war memorials.

She has compiled two booklets, ‘Glamis War Memorial’ and ‘Kirriemuir War Memorial’ which have now been published and are available from The Scottish Genealogy Society, Edinburgh.

Margaret visited the library recently to present copies of the booklets, along with her research files.

The publications give the names inscribed on the respective memorials and details on each of the casualties which will form a valuable addition to the library’s local history collection and are available for public viewing.
