Young historians database

Village database

The first project that the Young Historians took up was the compilation of the village database. It was constructed to prove an asset to the village and it certainly has been.

The Young Historians collated information about every resident in Tolsta to gather statistics to gauge the numbers of people in different age groups in the village are changing. The database has been updated annually in the chairman's report to the Annual General Meeting and enabled the Comann Eachdraidh to gain the knowledge of how the statistics of villagers are changing in time. It is quite interesting to compile, please feel free to look at our pictures and our stats.
