I found this free census very useful:

see

www.dgcommunity.net/historicalindexes/default.aspx

(could have saved some pounds on SP if I'd discovered it earlier!)

There are quite a few sites with extracts of various census in Scotland.  It's worth checking the different county boards as we've posted them in each county.

Freecen is also a growing resource for Scottish census.

I've seached and got lost in the dumgal site and can't find the link to the information I posted all those years ago. Maybe Kalishoek would be kind enough to point us in the right direction.  :)

Thanks very much Monica.  :) I have no idea why I couldn't find it when I looked last time. I will add that to my favourites.

What are DMS, KBT and WGT?

According to my Genealogical Research Directory, and to Wikipedia, the Chapman Codes for Dumfries-shire, Kirkcudbrightshire and Wigtownshire are DFS, KKD and Wigtownshire are DFS, KKD and WIG.

So where do these come from?
