Reports of meetings

December 2021

December 2021 Meeting attended by 22 people via Zoom.  

David Welsh gave a talk “Crossing the Border”, by way of introduction to the project he and another retired university lecturer are currently pursuing. Borders between countries nowadays are generally seen as permanent and well-guarded. The de facto border between Scotland and England has moved several times and has always been porous, often to the huge cost of those living either side. The project will use the data from successive census returns from the border areas, so will cover the period from 1851 onwards, although some issues raised are likely to have affected earlier periods. Talks on the findings will be offered once available.
