You can also participate from the comfort of your own home. Simply create an account by filling out the form below*, and you are ready to go!

Once your account has been created you can upload a maximum of six photographs to the archive. You don’t have to upload all six at once – you can revisit your account at any time. If you have more to upload, just sign in and upload the others.

Please make sure you have read our terms and conditions before uploading your photographs.

If you have any queries, please contact Deirdre on


The background details we are asking for relate to the person uploading the photographs and not necessarily the people in the photographs. The only background information that will be publicly displayed will be your place of birth so we can display the range of places that people have come from before choosing to live in Scotland.
