The Findhorn Foundation, an educational charity with its associated ecovillage, is located to the south of the village.The existing settlement is the second village to bear this name, the original having been a mile to the northwest of the present position and inundated by the sea.
Many of these collections have been catalogued and indexed.
In the seventeenth century Findhorn was the principal seaport of Moray and vessels regularly sailed to and from all parts of the North Sea and as far as the Baltic Ports.
Changes to the narrow and shallow entrance to the Bay created obstacles to navigation and as the size of trading vessels increased so the volume of trade to the village declined.
Documents such as birth, marriage and death certificates, school records, photographs, scrapbooks, family bibles etc.
can provide clues and help to build a fuller picture of your family’s history.
