Alyth burials transcriptions completed

Alyth Family History Project has completed a database of 1700 burial records transcriptions. The Perthshire project can help if no headstone has been erected, but if a stone is present, this has also been transcribed. Based at Alyth parish kirk, the database can be accessed at the site from 10am to 12pm on Saturdays and 2-4pm on Sundays. Also available are old parish records on microfilm dating from 1623 to 1854 and an archive of 5000 photos.

Wonderful but no use to me down in Gloucestershire. I'd happily pay to access all this information online.

You don't need to physically visit the Alyth archive. We accept enquiries by telephone or email - visit www.alythparishchurch.org.uk for contact details.
