Scotland During the Plantation of Ulster: The People of Dumfries and Galloway, 1600-1699
Author: David Dobson
Paperback, 134 pages
The latest book from David Dobson is designed to assist family historians researching their origins in Dumfries and Galloway during the 17th century. Since only three of 86 parish registers of the Church of Scotland prior to 1685 survive for this area, Mr. Dobson’s researches attempt to fill the void as best as possible. The volume is based, overwhelmingly, on primary sources in the National Archives of Scotland and Edinburgh, and is fully referenced.
