What is NEFA?

What is NEFA?

The Archive is essentially an on-line service, with a small collection of reference books available to the public by prior arrangement.

NEFA, The North East Folklore Archive, is a cultural resource created for the study and appreciation of the traditions and social history of Aberdeenshire.

It includes a number of local history publications and the song collections of Greig - Duncan and John Ord.

NEFA collects and collates information on the tradions and culture of the North East in order to make it available to the public via this website.

NEFA continues to forge links and develop partnerships with other parties of similar interests in order to improve and expand the service it provides.

Enquiries are regularly received from all corners of the globe, some from folk who have material to contribute, some from musicians and writers who want to know more about nefa and others from folk who simply want to know more about the life and times of their North East ancestors.

 

NEFA is administered by Aberdeenshire Council's Arts Development Team with support from The Scottish Arts Council, The Heritage Lottery Fund and the European 5B development scheme. 

NEFA is based in Aden Country Park, Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire, a public park that was once a part of the country estate owned by the Russell family of Aden House.
