Out and About Jan & Mar 2017 In this edition of the Johannesburg Newsletter, you can read the intriguing story of the burial of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, what is fact and what is fiction? Also, read a report of a fascinating discovery of a 250-year-old census that became known during cataloguing by the National Register of Archives for Scotland (NRAS). The census lists 90 people living on the remote archipelago on 15 June 1764 - 38 males and 52 females, including 19 families and 9 individuals. Until now, the earliest record dated from 1822. The islands, which lie about 40 miles west of Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides, were home to generations of people until the last were evacuated in 1930.
