THIS IS THE REDICULOUSLY EXHORBITANT CHARGE WHEN TRYING TO ASK FOR HELP WITH RESEARCH AT THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES IN LONDON (Kew)... £100.00 per hour :


Thank you for contacting The National Archives of the United Kingdom.
 

Because we have limited resources of staff and time we can't take this research any further on your behalf without charging a fee. If you are interested in using our paid search services please complete the relevant request form. We will contact you with the cost before we proceed. As a guide, we charge £25 (inc VAT) for 15 minutes.
 
To visit The National Archives to undertake research yourself please check our website for important information regarding our opening hours and closure dates, what to bring and ID requirements. This is especially important if you need to look at original documents as you must have the two valid and correct proofs of ID with you.
 
We wish you every success in your research, but please be aware that the records in our custody are not always complete. They were created and used by government departments and law courts for their own purposes. Sometimes the information you want may not have survived, and at other times it may have survived but be difficult to find.
 
I have not treated this as a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act. If you want us to treat it as a Freedom of Information request, please re-send your enquiry using the contact form but please note that we will charge for research.
 
I hope this is helpful.
 
Yours sincerely,
 

Remote Enquiries Duty Officer

IMPORTANT STATEMENT:

WE  FORWARDED E-MAILS  (THROUGH THEIR OWN SYSTEM)  TO THE 'ANGUS HERITAGE' WEBSITE REQUESTING THE INCLUSION OF GEORGE BEATTIE... TO NO AVAIL OR RESPONSE.
THE STORY HAS BEEN 'DROPPED' BY THE 'DUNDEE COURIER' ALONG WITH OTHER LOCAL PUBLICATIONS AND RECENTLY REJECTED BY THE 'SCOTS MAGAZINE' EDITORS... DESPITE THE ENTHUSIASM OF OTHER EMPLOYEES THEREOF.
THE BOOK WAS SENT 'FREE OF CHARGE' TO THE PRIMARY REPRESENTATIVES OF VARIOUS ANGUS INSTITUTIONS ETC... WITHOUT ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF ANY KIND.
WE BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE BEEN DELIBERATELY 'STONEWALLED' BY THE LOCAL 'POWERS THAT BE'... WHETHER DUE TO 'INTELLECTUAL/ACADEMIC SNOBBERY' OR A STILL ONGOING AGENDA OF OBFUSCATION... WE HAVE YET TO DISCOVER.
REGARDLESS... WE WILL PREVAIL... COMPLETE OUR MISSION AND ACHIEVE OUR GOAL OF MAXIMUM DISCLOSURE AND APPROPRIATE PUBLIC RECOGNITION OF GEORGE BEATTIE, HIS STORY AND HIS LITERARY LEGACY... AND ULTIMATELY, ATTAIN THE PUBLIC MEMORIAL WHICH SHOULD HAVE ALREADY EXISTED IN MONTROSE ALONGSIDE THE PLETHORA OF 'SELECTED' OTHERS... SOME OF WHICH BEING 'PROFOUNDLY' LESS DESERVING IN COMPARISON !!!

OUR RESEARCH IS BECOMING EVERMORE FRUITFUL SINCE ENGAGING THE AID OF PROFESSIONALS AT THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES AT KEW.
OUR CURRENT FOCUS IS MAINLY ON PARTICULAR KEY CHARACTERS IN THE GEORGE BEATTIE STORY AND THEIR TRUE ACTIVITIES IN THE WEST INDIES WITH REGARDS TO THE SLAVE TRADE, PLANTATION OWNERSHIP, WILLS AND THE SUBSEQUENT REPATRIATION OF IMMENSE FUNDS TO BRITAIN GAINED THEREBY.
OUR FINDINGS WILL BE PUBLISHED AS SOON AS THEY HAVE BEEN APPROPRIATELY VERIFIED, COLLATED AND STRUCTURED.

For the FIRST time EVER... The George Beattie Project presents a brand new original song specifically commissioned by us... which has been composed around George Beattie's final heart-breaking poem, the 'Farewell Sonnet'  by an incredibly talented young musician... Daniel McMullen !!!

NEW BOOK  RESEARCH PROJECT FOR 2014/15




"That plots were laid by others to oust me and secure Miss Gibson’s fortune, I know well from the inquiries that were made at myself from a certain quarter. Those who interfered were far too many for me."
