This project - to transcribe and key into computer the returns of the 1851 Census for all the parishes of Dumfriesshire, Kirkcudbrightshire and Wigtownshire - was begun in 1990 and undertaken by the Friends of the Archives of Dumfries and Galloway and other volunteers, as listed below*.

KEY: DMS = Dumfriesshire
KBT = Kirkcudbrightshire
WGT = Wigtownshire

The number at the end of each entry is that of the household within each enumeration district (eg 4/3 means the 3rd household visited in enumeration district 4).

* "Friends" and others involved : Mrs Margaret Bold, Mrs Jan Donowho, Mr John Drummond, Mrs Stella Marrs, Miss Viviennne Orr and Mrs Betty Paisley; assisted by : Mrs Deirdre Brown, Mrs Sheila Crossthwaite, Miss Lucy Gibbon, Mrs Margaret Hugo, Miss Andrea Mallaby, Mrs Doreen Morgan, Mrs Margaret Robinson and Mr Alan Sinclair.
