Using the Archive

The Scottish Beekeeper started in July 1924 and vol.1 ran to June 1925. Vols 2 and 3 followed that pattern.
However, vol. 4 started in July 1927 but continued for 18 months, ending in December 1928.
The magazines since then have all followed the January to December pattern.

The index as such is not always an alphabetical index but takes the form of a list of articles, letters and so on.The index for each year is generally to be found in that year’s December issue although sometimes it appears in the January issue that follows.
Some years are without any form of index.

Be aware that there are instances where pages are wrongly numbered or are repeated.
Roman numerals where used are not always correct [typos].
