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.
Resources Include
* KIRK SESSION INDEXES for Irregular Marriage and Illegitimate Births
* BUCCLEUCH ESTATE RENTAL Rolls from 1630 to 1815
* 18th Century COMMUNION ROLLS
