Just reinforce this point on lost histories, just read on BBC that some of the valuable instruments (not bagpipes) of a much-lauded Indian musician got melted down by his grandson:
Indian musician Bismillah Khan's instruments 'stolen by grandson'

They got melted down for their silver. Shows how passing down valuable patrimony doesn't help in preserving heritage assets.

I am fortunate enough to have a set of cocus/ivory 1890s Hutcheons like Lochaberaxe's old set, and when I bought them I was gifted a written summary of the history of the set. I'll make sure I have an updated history ready to go in my will to accompany them on their way!

A registry could be a nice idea with photos, blueprint, stories, and Cites certificates duplicatas that could be helpful for "owners" and a contribution to save bagpipe history in the future.

I believe they are lots of unique sets that will be lost definitely in case of accident or lack of care of just because of time; who here one day was lucky enough to listen to a Muir Wood ?

That's why I fit a sterling silver bass drone shield by David Davidse on my Sinclairs noting the past owners name, 1952 Schotts World Champions and former Military unit. Not the whole story with "limited" space....but a good start

The deed is reproduced in the article, or in the video clip, and it clearly specifies that if the young fellow ever decides to abandon piping, his pipes are to be returned for reassignment.

May be Ringo should be interested to share his skills to create a listing in connection with his website?

Sort of an Ancestry.com for bagpipes?

Yes. Except the ancestors and the progeny will all be "alive" (hopefully)
