|About Cumnock Connections
In conjunction with Cumnock History Group
http://cumnockhistorygroup.org/which is is full of fabulous photos and lots of
I am happy to do research for members of Cumnock History Group. Annual membership is only £10.
If this tree has helped your research you might consider making a small donation to Cumnock History Group to
help with the expense of buying certificates. This can be done via Paypal on the website above.
Headstones in Cumnock Old Cemetery were photographed in 2014 by members of Cumnock History Group. They can be
purchased on a USB memory stick via the Group's website above
Note that there are two neighbouring parishes: Old Cumnock (with the town now known simply as Cumnock ) and New
Cumnock to the south with the town of New Cumnock.
When researching my ancestors I found many in Cumnock (in Ayrshire, Scotland) where my husband's
family is from. Maybe yours are there too.
The aim is to have a tree to show how all our Cumnock ancestors may link together.
No living people will be entered since this is a public tree, but otherwise, anyone who was in Cumnock or whose ancestors or
descendants were in Cumnock may be entered. Inevitably the area covered is much wider than Cumnock.
Our ancestors moved around a lot!
Every effort has been made to verify the information on this tree using mainly scotlandspeople and other sites but you should
verify for yourself using certificates to be sure. If you think there is a mistake, please get in touch and I
will double check and sort.
Sources I use most frequently are BMDs and censuses from scotlandspeople.gov.uk and familysearch.org/ Also
Memorial Inscriptions from graveyards, most of which are not online. Also wills, army service records, newspapers.
Do not assume this tree will always be here (although it is backed up!), so make your own tree.
If you would like to add your family please contact me, via the link above.
