The society was a consortium of eleven local history societies in East Lothian, led by the East Lothian Antiquarian and Field Naturalists Society.

The project received a grant in 1999 of £30,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

All the archive material is deposited with East Lothian Council’s Local History Centre in Haddington.

All the project’s publications were published in partnership with East Lothian Council Library Service and are on sale through local bookshops and libraries.

The original website was created by Peter Gray. The new site is hosted by Our Locality, an East Lothian hyperlocal local network of websites.

Foreword by Prof. Rosalind Mitchison.
