DGFHS publish booklets of Memorial Inscriptions (gravestones transcriptions) for many of the graveyards in the Dumfries and Galloway area. The booklets are organised in parishes – e.g. Kirkmaiden is the graveyard in Kirkmaiden parish not the kirkyard of the same name in Glasserton parish. In the 1960s and 1970s Archie Shannon and George Gilchrist led a team of volunteers who transcribed many of the gravestones in Dumfriesshire. We have completed our project to republish these. We have also published all the existing Old Parish burial records for Dumfriesshire.
We have started to update some booklets to include a full name index and taken the opportunity when doing so to make corrections and some additions. The following are our latest updates:
Closeburn Churchyard Memorial Inscriptions Vol 1 – Oct 2019
Closeburn Churchyard Memorial Inscriptions Vol 2 – Oct 2019
