THREE different systems of identifying newsletters have been used:

1. Until June 2008, each newsletter had a volume and issue number and a date; thus 5/2 10/00 is volume 5, issue 2, October 2000.

2. Starting in September 2008 consecutive numbering was added, starting with no.44; thus 12/1 02/09 46 is volume 12, issue 1, February 2009, number 46.

3. After August 2012 the volume and issue numbers were dropped; thus 03/13 56 is March 2013, number 5.

Articles taken from other publications are omitted.

Categories are those used on the Helensburgh Heritage Trust website. There is also a Miscellaneous category for items which do not apply to any other category. Some subjects appear under more than one heading.
