We are busy updating the history museum displays. Thanks to the wee Monday Archive Team/Coffee Club for all their assistance.

Busy getting the Museum ready for the painters to move in overnight Monday 30th July. Usual task of covering everything and moving furniture about. Good job we have got a great team of volunteers willing to help.

Interesting family research by Jane Cassidy on her great-grandfather Frank Downs. See the News section.

We're experimenting sporadically with layout options to accommodate the increasing number of mobile device users visiting the site. Some pages are more easily read on small screens by turning the device to landscape mode (wide view).

Check out Eddie McRorie's new article on his years at Wickman Lang. Skilled workers along with business folk made Johnstone what it is. johnstonehistory.org

The Contact form has been repaired. Use it to send a message to the administrator, who will forward it to the right person to help you.

Just perused the WWI honor role. I think one can safely say there are "too many" names. johnstonehistory.org

Just to let you know that we have two new displays at the Museum. 1)A Patons display of threads, cord and Shoe Laces as well as some of the Company Advertising materials. 2)A display memorabilia of old Johnstone Organisations, Clubs and Societies.

If you had a problem posting an update Feb 25-27 please try again. A wee bug crept into the premises; happily it attacked the website instead of our exhibits. We think we've squashed it. Have a go!

We can always use a little more help. Are you a knowledgeable local historian or history buff?

Subscribe!

FREE registration does not help us pay the costs of the site. Subscription to the site is easy, and at £12 per year it's a bargain. You get expanded profile features plus early notice of more goodies as the site grows, and you may participate in more features of the site. We use revenue to pay the expenses of the web site, and any surplus (hope springs eternal) helps suppport other museum projects.

Advertise!

We are happy to provide a listing in our Sponsor Directory to sponsoring organizations and business, which provides links to online business and social groups.

Expanded "online brochures" with full HTML/CSS formatting are available for modest donatons to showcase products and services or to describe the History (surprise!) of your group.
