the Mouswald Kirk Session database >>>
The minute book of the Kirk Session of the parish of Mouswald in Dumfriesshire
from 1640 to 1659 has been indexed by Mr A E Truckell MBE and the resultant
data keyed into computer by Mr George Findlay, two members of the "Friends of
the Archives of Dumfries and Galloway".
The minutes were being compiled during troubled times and their content includes
witchcraft, theft, "gathering nuts on the Sabbath" and other misdemeanours as
well as the more common offence of fornication.
The data has been indexed by Personal Name, Place Name and Page Number. Most
entries also have some text enlarge on the passage indexed.
