Who? What? Where? When?
We are trying to index diverse records that might contain information about your ancestors that you cannot find in sources currently available. This is to help you get over those irritating genealogical brick walls!
We index births, marriages, deaths, prisons, court records and much more to help you find those elusive ancestors. We also like to index records that add depth to your knowledge of your ancestors; prison records for example!
Our indexes focus on the South of Scotland, particularly the counties of Roxburghshire, Berwickshire, Selkirkshire, Peeblesshire, Dumfriesshire, Wigtownshire and the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright.
As civil registration began in Scotland in 1855 many of our records focus on pre-1855 records but some continue after that year.
We have now made available an online searchable database for paternity cases in Sheriff Courts in the south of Scotland.
Dumfriesshire 1830-1864 and 1884-1897
More records coming soon!
The records we have indexed are not part of the Church of Scotland Old Parish Registers (or OPRs) as found on the Scotland's People site, and therefore contain many records of births, marriages and deaths which are not to be found anywhere else.
Births/Baptisms (5,613 entries).
Marriages/Banns (1,175 entries).
Deaths/Burials (2,583 entries).
Selkirk 1828-1840, 1853-1878
