Clan Macpherson Museum - Library
The Helen MacPherson Thompson Library
The goal of the library committee has been to provide Clan Members and other interested parties with a reference library reflecting past, present and future activities.
We are pleased to announce that the library contents are now online and available for study in the museum.
The contents include:
- History of the Clan System
- History of Clan Macpherson and Septs
- History of the Region (Badenoch and Strathspey)
- History of Scotland with emphasis on Highland history
- Materials useful for Genealogy research
- Books, non-fiction and fiction, by Macpherson authors
- Books relating to emigration and immigration of Scots
Access to the library is available for:
- Macphersons and members of Associated Families of the Clan
- Educational establishments (in particular local schools)
- Association members interested in Genealogy
- Others, as approved by the Library Committee
The library is to be used for reference only; access, therefore, is only by appointment and at the convenience of the Curator. Children must be supervised at all times and numbers limited.
When planning a trip to the Clan Macpherson Museum and desiring to use the library, please contact the curator in advance with a list of the books that you would like to peruse. The books will be ready for you at the time of your visit and space will be provided for your study. The books do not leave the museum.
We hope that you will find the following lists helpful in planning your next visit.
