A break can help as you can then come back later re-energised!

From what I can see here - http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers/CountyDumfries.htm#PageTitle - Old Parish Register records for Closeburn seem to start around 1765/6.

It may be that your Douglas and Nivision families did not belong to the established Church of Scotland, ie presbyterian. OPRs are in the main for CofS records.
