If you have any objects that tell the story or your or your family’s migration, please contribute it to the Digital Museum to fill it with the stories of the Scottish community from around the world and Scottish migration.
The definition of ‘object’ is very broad – it can be anything from a cookbook to a dress, from a handwritten letter to a photograph of a caber tossed at a Highland Games. It can be a family heirloom passed down generations just as much as a more contemporary item. The story is yours to tell.
To submit your object and story, please click here for the submission page.
If you have any questions about how you can contribute, please email Dr Tanja Bueltmann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
