Sharing Shetland Surnames - 2018 December 12th, 2017


Following on from highly successful projects these past two years the Society has another project simmering away on the hearth stone.

The events to celebrate the name Robertson will be launched on the evening of Saturday 9th June in the South Nesting Hall and open again in the hall on the afternoon of Sunday 10th June. Keep an eye on this website for updates and launch news.

What can you do? If you have this name in your family tree and would like to contribute information, stories, people profile or indeed help with the event please contact the Society as soon as possible, we would love to hear from you.

Any offers of assistance or material for these projects would be gratefully appreciated and can be forwarded to:
