Morag Williams.

Morag completed 25 years as the first and only Archivist to the Dumfries and Galloway Health Board in May 2008. During that time she saw many changes of organisation and had in succession nine different bosses(a bit like the 'Vicar of Bray'!). She was also the Curator of the Crichton Royal Museum(now closed), which she set up along with hospital staff at her base on the Crichton site.Since retiring she has been busier than ever dealing with enquiries; although she was not replaced any enquiry, other than something very simple, that the Health Board receives tends to be passed to her(although she enjoys helping people the downside is that she no longer gets paid for her time and she gets less done in her garden!),

I took early retirement from Nestle UK Ltd, Dumfries factory, where I was Warehouse Manager. I am responsible for the technical input to this site so any mistakes are mine. My interests are:
