Donna Moore - The Lock Trilogy: Historical Crime Fiction

Donna Moore is Adult Literacy and Numeracy Development Worker at Glasgow Women’s Library. She has a Masters in Community Learning and Development, a Masters in Gender Studies and has recently completed a PhD in Creative Writing. She facilitates creative writing and other workshops at GWL and loves anything related to reading, writing and women’s history.

The Lock Trilogy was written as part of a creative writing PhD which explores the gendered treatment of women and women's history and the possibilities of fiction to bring those aspects to the fore. The three novellas are set in Scotland and tell the stories of three generations of women from the late 1870s to 1919. This was a time of great flux and upheaval which brought enormous changes in many aspects of women’s lives – economically, socially, politically, legally. I wanted to explore the lives of marginalised women whose stories are often missing from the records.

Donna will share these stories and her research into them 

Roddy Greig - Fife Kalendar of Convicts

Roddy became a trustee of the Fife FHS in 2014 and is now the treasurer and one of the researchers for the Society.

Upon retirement, he undertook a two-year university course and  now holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Genealogy Studies from Strathclyde University, Glasgow. Thereafter, he tutored at Strathclyde,  leading a course.on Family History for Beginners. 

Roddy will tell us about the Fife Family History Society's Kalendar of Convicts and the 28,000 names in that database.
