Records to be transcribed for the Ardchattan Parish Project

please help and join the transcription group - and we very much welcome any further contributions.
We are extremely honoured and grateful to the GROS for giving us permission to publish the records for this parish. This is a RARE priviledge, we know.

Please email for spreadsheet formats where applicable.

The point about transcribing these records is to get them into a form whereby they can be searched, online and within databases to enable descendants to find their relatives.
These databases will also allow us to build up the connections between the families who have been born, married, lived, worked and died in the villages of Barcaldine, Benderloch, North Connel and Bonawe, as well as the other many settlements.
Other archives help to paint the picture of the lives of these communities, what affected them, and how they coped.

Each word that is added, each name, each fact, is another piece in the jigsaw puzzle of what makes Ardchattan such a fascinating place.
