Downloadable Genealogy Resources for Dumfriesshire and Roxburghshire
|In my 30 years of researching my own family ancestors in and around Canonbie in Dumfriesshire, I have discovered a range of specialist family history resources to help uncover more than what is possible from using more conventional Scottish resources such as OPRs, Censuses and Monumental Inscriptions. |
In these difficult post-COVID times, the time is right to make these available to researchers across the world. This site brings together these resources in a combination that you’ll find nowhere else. They are particularly suited for earlier pre-1840 investigations. Some downloads are Free and there is a small Paypal charge for others.
