Scottish Monumental Inscriptions update

Helen Grant has just dropped me a note with the latest news from her Scottish Monumental Inscriptions site, which has recently been redeveloped at

The following is a summary of recent progress:

Still Under Transcription
Dunfermline Cemetery CD1 - CD2- CD3 maybe even 4
Dunfermline has been a total nightmare to do as we have had to go back at least 7 or 8 times, due to light issues, bad photographs, the list goes on, but glad to say were catching up here now with only about 12 sections to complete. This will be with you as soon as we can get it ready.

New On CD now.
From the Isle Of Bute:
Rothesay Cemetery (Barone Road)
St Colmac's Church, Cnoc-an-Raer
Kingarth Church and Cemetery

Cemeteries waiting to be completed are:
Patna- Ayrshire
Irvine Church- Ayrshire
Lesmahagow Cemetery- LKS
Linlithgow Cemetery

Recently Photographed:
Blairgowrie Cemetery
Blairgowrie old Kirk
Rattray Church

(With thanks to Helen)
