Plan of Wigtownshire Churchyards Including register of names 1800 - 1950
« on: Wednesday 08 February 17 11:43 GMT (UK) »
Hello

Can anyone assist.  I am looking for details of persons buried at various churchyards in Wigtownshire from 1800 thro to 1950.  In particular the following churchyards: Cairnryan, Inch, Leswalt Old and New, Stoneykirk and Kirkmaiden.  If details exist, is there one place where these records might be kept?  Thank you for any help. 

Christine

Hi Christine

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

Have you tried contacting Dumfries and Galloway Council? Given that you are looking for details up the 1950s, this might be a good starting point for you as will this group here www.dgfhs.org.uk/resources.asp

This looks to be what is a listing of some of the published monumental inscriptions for Wigtownshire www.nls.uk/family-history/gravestones/inscriptions/county.cfm?id=36  This listing linked here is from the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh (their records are not available online).

Family History Groups in individual areas can also have these as booklets and other details available.

In addition, there will be other listings online such as here http://freepages.history.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ainsty/chapple/sorbie_working.html although I don't think these include the areas you mention unfortunately.

What a poignant photograph Monica. Looks like a cover for a novel. Is there a story to tell?

Hi Judy

One of my favourite photos this one. Taken by an amazing lady, Mary Ethel Muir Donaldson. A London girl, she fell in love with the beauty of the Western Highlands and settled in Ardnamurchan in the 1920s. She spent many years taking the most powerful and beautiful everyday photos of the period. See www.ornaverum.org/family/donaldson/mary-e-muir.html and www.blaven.com/memdonaldson.aspx

Well I never. How fascinating. I thought the young girl was one of your ancestors. Another strong independant woman who had sufficient money to do what she wanted to do.

Thank you very much.

I am looking for information about the cemeteries in Stranraer. I have an Agnes McNab nee Jackson who died in 1866 and I can't work out where she might have been buried. She died in Queen street.

Does anyone know the date that Glebe cemetery was opened?

Most of all I am trying to find anything about her husband James McNab or McNaby or even McNabney, sherrif officer. I know nothing except the name and even that has been listed in various ways on the children's certs. He may have died before 1841.
