Historical Indexes

For several years, the Friends of the Archives of Dumfries and Galloway have been working closely with the Archivist to transcribe, index and explain each of the historical records below which are amongst the many collections held in Dumfries and Galloway Archives.

These indexes open up the contents of these diverse kinds of archives for research of all kinds or just to give a picture - by turns vivid, funny and pathetic - of life in Dumfries and Galloway in centuries past. Click on any title to explore them.

The indexing project is still on-going so existing indexes may expand and new indexes may be added as the project continues. Please let us know if you find any discrepancies or errors in this material.

If you are interested in volunteering for the indexing project get in touch with us at the Archive Centre (libarchive@dumgal.gov.uk).
