A collection of historical and genalogical records
The kirkyards website is a resource containing a variety of information to assist people researching their family trees where their ancestors came from the Stewartry (or County) of Kirkcudbright, or the local history of the county, as it existed prior to 1975 when county boundaries were removed and it became part of Dumfries and Galloway.
All inscriptions on gravestones in the following parishes were transcribed and the gravestones photographed; Borgue, Buittle, Colvend, Parton, Rerrick, Tongland and Twynholm. These inscriptions can be viewed and searched.
An index of as many place-names within the parish as we could find on the 1st Ordnance Survey maps from around 1850. The index already contains over 7,900 names. Place index cards then link to the old OS map, to the modern OS map of the same area, to Satellite views of the area and, in some cases, to Google's Street Views of the places themselves. This is an on-going work in progress but has many valuable resources already included.
