This site is a work in progress, is free and for educational and interest purposes. I have been researching James McLevy since 2004 and collect here some of that work. Many people have given up their time to help me with my research and their organisations are acknowledged below.
The staff of the National Archives for Scotland, West Register House, Edinburgh. Fantastic customer service. Permission for limited use and to photograph documents granted
The General Register Office for Scotland ( census, birth, death and marriage details) – publicly available at the ScotlandsPeople website. Permission to use images for education and research purposes.
The National Library for Scotland transformed from the “library of last resort” in my youth to the modern accessible organisation it is today.
The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland – a very innovative organisation
The Edinburgh Room staff at the main library and the Capital Collections web site.
