Order a CD Don't pass this offer up!of 1878 Ordnance Survey Maps of Islay

I have spoken with our group who are working on the Islay Cultural Database project, one of the things we did early on was to acquire a complete set of the 1878 (1st) Ordnance Survey of Islay, some 20 maps which cover the whole of Islay and portray all the old places names and the settlements of many of the listers.  It has become obvious to us that many of the Islay listers don't know or can't get hold of good enough maps.  We are prepared to offset our costs by selling a CD of the 20 maps digitized so you can walk with their ancestors and discover what Islay was like in 1878.

We have considered a sum of 20, plus postage and packaging, say the equivalent of 22 if your listers want a CD then they can post their requirement and I will communicate with them. This we consider is a generous offer and a must for any serious researcher to have as a reference.
