We have acquired the publication rights for four booklets previously published by Cairndhu Publications
Langholm Pt 1 - Old Langholm and Staplegord MIs : 
Langholm Pt 2 and Wauchope
Watcarrick & Eskdalemuir


All of the above are out of print and there are no stocks remaining. Work is on going to produce new booklets in our standard house style for MI booklets.

Please do not place any orders for these titles until further notice. We will update our Publications List as soon as the new editions become available.



The FHS publishes booklets of Memorial Inscriptions (gravestones) for many of the graveyards in the Dumfries and Galloway area. The booklets are organised in parishes - eg Kirkmaiden is the graveyard in Kirkmaiden parish not the kirkyard of the same name in Glasserton parish. In the 1960s and 70s Archie Shannon and George Gilchrist led a team of volunteers who transcribed many of the gravestones in Dumfriesshire. We have completed our project to republish these. We also have published all the existing burial records for Dumfriesshire.
