We have access to old newspapers which contain birth, marriage and death announcements, plus some which were reported 50 years earlier. We also have copies of some original BMD certificates. Furthermore we have copies of a number of Church magazines which refer to baptisms weddings and funerals.

The nature of these sources mean that any list we provide cannot in any way be thought of as complete, but we will  include those that we have transcribed in the hope that someone might get lucky !

{the brackets contain the source of the information : SRO usually implies that the source was an actual certificate, Mag. means the information came from a Church magazine, whilst KA means that the details came from the Kirkcudbrightshire Advertiser on the date specified - GN represents the Galloway News. .
