New title by Bill Lawson

Bill Lawson Publications based in the Old Schoolhouse in Northton, Isle of Harris, has published the 73rd book from research into island families.

The new title includes the main emigration areas overseas, Australia, North America, and other areas.

In the past three months the company has published three books on Isle of Lewis Emigrants, completing their existing information on emigrants from Lewis up to the early 1900s.

The most recent three books cover the areas of Lochs, Uig and the rural areas of Stornoway parish.

Three new Croft Histories have also been published, all in Lewis.

These are for the areas of Aird, Portvoller and Brocair, Breasclete and Pairc Chalanais and Lower Shader.

The company, set up in 1989 in the old school and schoolhouse in Northton in Harris, has recorded in book form the detailed history of many of the villages of the Western Isles.

They have also published genealogical sourcebooks and books on some historical sites in the islands as well as the emigrant registers. There are many more titles in preparation for other parts of the islands.

The books are all sold online through website as well as in local shops.
