Members Only Content
Electric Scotland will always be a FREE site but we are going to launch a "Members Only" web site later this year where you would need to pay for membership. New books on Clans and Scottish history will be made available on pretty much a daily basis (Mon-Fri) through this service. The money raised will be used to employ a person to OCR in content from antiquarian books and other resources as well as to purchase the content. This content will only be available to paid up members.
