Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

Plans to cre­ate a £6.2 mil­lion ar­chive cen­tre in Dum­fries have failed to se­cure a grant from the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund. Dum­fries and Gal­loway Coun­cil had ear­marked a site at the Ewart Li­brary to house the fa­cil­ity, which – if fund­ing had been ap­proved – would have also meant ren­o­vat­ing a nearby church. How­ever, the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund has re­jected the grant ap­pli­ca­tion, mean­ing coun­cil bosses will now have to look else­where for fi­nan­cial sup­port. Full story at bbc.in/1Si6vID.
