Friends of Perth & Kinross Archive
The Friends of Perth & Kinross Archive was established in 2000. It was started by local researchers who wanted to support the Archive and create opportunities for more people to learn about their history and culture.
Members enjoy two newsletters each year, an annual programme of talks and outings, and volunteer their time supporting a wide range of cataloguing and outreach projects in the Archive.

They are free to members and £5 for non-members.

The Friends produce two Newsletters each year which contain articles about the history of Perth & Kinross, especially research arising from the Archive.
Over the years, many members of the Friends have contributed articles to the Newsletter and we welcome new submissions for consideration.
If you wish to submit an article, please send it to [email protected]
The Friends is run by a committee of volunteers. We are always pleased to welcome new people to help run the group. If you would like to volunteer your time, please contact the Membership Secretary on [email protected].
Friends’ members also volunteer in the Archive. Archive volunteers help to catalogue and re-package the records, create finding aids and exhibitions, and help out with open days, fairs and conferences. Archive volunteer opportunities are advertised on the Culture Perth and Kinross Volunteer With Us page.
