COMPLETE COLLECTION OF ALL ISSUES - Numbers 01

- 73
Though nothing more was added to 'The Kintyre Mag' website after the Spring of 2006, the
website was seemingly kept online until early in 2010, when its disappearance came as
something of a disappointment and indeed a matter of concern as many people around The
World found the website and its contents of great interest.

Fortunately, thanks to the Internet Archive
http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.kintyremag.co.uk/ the website had been 'trawled' on
89 occasions between 2004 and 2007 and all 73 issues of 'The Kintyre Mag' seem to have
been safely secured on the Internet Archives' in America and Egypt, where the organisation's
backup servers are located to store some 150 BILLION pages of websites, many of these now
no longer online.

Of necessity, as all the 'URL addresses' of all the issues and all their webpages now begin with
the Internet Archive 'URL prefixes', it has been necessary here to create a completely new
contents listing with the new page links and anyone using any of the 'composite' indexes,
such as the "A - Z" index at http://www.scribd.com/doc/5999486/Kintyre-Magazine-Kintyre-
Web-and-Kist-Magazine-Composite-Index cross-referencing 'The Kintyre Magazine' articles
with those in these editions of 'The Kintyre Mag' should now use the links to be found here, a
full contents, issue-by-issue, list to 'The Kintyre Mag' can be found e.g. at
http://www.scribd.com/doc/5998858/Kintyre-Magazine-Web-Edition-Contents

To view any particular issue of 'The Kintyre Mag' or any particular article listed in the indexes,
simply note the issue and/or page number given in the index and GO TO THE LINK(S) on the
pages HERE and one will then be taken to the 'archived' copy on the Internet Archive servers.

Too, because of the archiving process, article pages may belong to different 'trawling' circuits
and, whilst page links in some archived magazine issues may not work directly from that
particular magazine issue, the page links here should take one to the required article(s).
Sadly, in some cases, many of the photographs, illustrations and drawings were not secured
in the archiving processes.

More can be found about The Internet Archive's 'Wayback Machine' at
http://www.archive.org/web/web.php and there is a 'FAQ's' page at
http://www.archive.org/about/faqs.php#The_Wayback_Machine

The following note was given in the introduction to the very first, January 1997, issue of 'The
Kintyre Mag' - "It is with the kind permission of the encumbent Vice-President of The Society,
Mrs Frances Hood FSA Scot., that I am able to bring you these wonderful articles and tales
from a bygone age. Ian Forshaw, 2 Jan '97".

It is clearly apparent that much effort and many patient hours of work went into the creation of
'The Kintyre Mag' and it is now hoped that these links to its issues and pages will prove of
great value to researchers and historians now and in time to come. For further information

For anyone unfamiliar with Kintyre or interested in exploring the area on-screen, the links in
the 80-page long "Kintyre and The Kintyre Way Linked to Geograph Photographs and
Google Maps" document which can be found online at
http://www.scribd.com/doc/16932276/Kintyre-and-the-Kintyre-Way-Linked-to-Geograph-
Photographs-and-Google-Maps should be found of particular interest, Google's 'Street View'
photograph links on the Google Maps now covering virtually all of Kintyre, except for the road
section leading down to The Mull of Kintyre lighthouse - Use the EDIT/FIND facility on the
computer's toolbar and type in the place-name of interest to find the various links in the
document, these taking one directly to the Google Maps and the "pegman" then manipulated
to take one to the place(s) of interest - See http://www.scribd.com/doc/28498139/Google-
Street-View-Photographs-of-Kintyre-and-Gigha-Online which will give some more guidance
and information about Google's 'Street View' technology and 'the pegman'.

Despite the following notice, this was to be the final edition of 'The Kintyre Mag', the website
at 'kintyremag.co.uk' kept online until 'recent time' and the magazine issues, fortunately,
'archived' by Internetarchive.org http://www.archive.org/ -

For personal reasons, the online Magazine has
been discontinued until further notice.

Many thanks to all of you wonderful folks for your
input over the years and I hope that we can meet
