The Living Memory Association

Edinburgh's Reminiscence Project • Established 1986


Macmerry Lives

Macmerry Lives has been an oral history project carried out by the Living Memory Association in the village of Macmerry in 2009-2010.

The project involved the pupils of Macmerry Primary School as well as older members of the community. The children helped investigate Macmerry in the olden days while older people who lived in Macmerry came forward to tell the history of their village.

The book that was published to accompany this project is available to download (PDF, 38 MB).
