The Annual General Meeting of the Orkney Heritage Society will be held at the St Magnus Centre, Kirkwall, at 7pm on 16th November 2023.
The meeting will be followed by a talk by John Leith: Letters from Below Decks.
In the late 18th / early 19th centuries the Leith brothers went to sea. They sent and received letters, many of which still exist. John Leith talks about what he has found so far researching these letters and some of the questions raised for further research.
