Do you have anecdotes of the old days in Elie and Earlsferry to share?

The Society wants to record stories for future generations. This is easily done in the comfort of your own home. It is simple and very informal. Just let us know and we will arrange to meet and discuss it with you.

Cleaning out the attic?

Don’t throw away anything which might be of historical interest, even remotely. The Society welcomes artefacts, leaflets, pictures, maps, documents and anything else relating to local history.  If you know of anyone moving house in the village with photos or memorabilia please let us know.  We will collect, collate and be most grateful.  We are anxious to preserve as much as we can for future generations.  Contact us via the webmaster or secretary.
