Stirlings of Keir and their Family Papers FrontspeiceFor the first time in over 140 years the book "The Stirlings of Keir" by William Fraser is available for purchase. This book is as rare as hens teeth, just 150 copies were privately published in 1858, most are in private collections in Scotland. Just three or four copies are known to exist in America.

Thanks to the folks at the Scottish Genealogical & Historical Research Trust, the book is being digitally scanned and mastered for publication. The print run is currently scheduled for the beginning of November to allow ample time to make this the best Christmas present any Stirling Researcher could have.

The book is being published on archival quality paper, with the most exacting standards. The company printing the book is the largest printer of rare family histories in the world.

The cost of the book is U.S. $99.50 plus shipping and handling. Some may think it's expensive, but look at what this book contains about the Stirling family -
