What people are saying about the Hawick Archaeological Society..

  • “ Not really about archaeology, but a fantastic way to unearth information about the history of the area around Hawick, in the heart of the Scottish Borders.  The huge number of articles in the Society's Transactions form an unparalleled view of the traditions, language and people of this area. And since so many families can trace their roots back here, it represents a genealogical goldmine!

  • “ The Transactions from the Hawick Archaeological Society have been a most valuable resource for me in tracing my ancestors that stemmed from Hawick and the surrounding countryside, from my GGGGGG Grandparents from Branxholme Town to the likes of my ancestor James Wilson, the founder of the "Economist" magazine from Hawick.”

    Brett James Wilson

  • “ We are huge fans of Transactions of the Hawick Archaeological Society. It's a treasure trove of valuable information, and we are very lucky to have access to it. One of the many ancestors we traced was Robert Murray a founder of the Society. It continues to be a knowledgeable and rewarding experience
