Kinmundy Historical Society Online Archives

Using the Archives

To access the current archive materials, select your area of interest from the menu to the left. You will be taken to a thumbnail index page, sorted by filename (numeric and then alphabetical), from which you can access the larger images and more detailed information. Each thumbnail is linked to its detail page.

All Images
All the images and scanned documents in the Archive. This is a very large file and will take some time to download on slow connections, as there are already over 600 items in the Archive.

The detail pages have navigation links that allow you to browse forward and back through the entire archive, and a link that will take you to the All Images index. To return to the category page you came from, either click the "back" button in your browser or select the category page from the menu to the left.

The online archives are an evolving resource, and the structure of this section of our site will certainly change as the collection of both images and text grows.
