|About Cumnock Connections
In conjunction with and funded by Cumnock History Group.
http://cumnockhistorygroup.org/ full of fabulous photos and lots of information.
The aim is to have a tree to show how all our Cumnock ancestors may link together.
The contributors to the tree are members or friends of CHG with a large contribution from Kay McMeekin (KayM) chair of Cumnock History Group and webmaster, and the late Bobby Grierson and the late John Robertson.
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 Donate here
Headstones in Cumnock Old Cemetery were photographed in 2014 by members of Cumnock History Group. The new cemetery was photographed in 2020 by George McMillan. A USB stick with all the photographs and inscriptions from the two cemeteries can be purchased from us for £10 plus £1 P&P
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.
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 from ancestry.com, findmypast.com, 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, the British Newspaper Archive. Much information comes from other people.
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.
NEW blog in 2016 http://chgscottishfamilyhistory.blogspot.co.uk with tips on
finding your Scottish ancestors.
For given names, I use standard spelling e.g. Elizabeth even though the record says Elisabeth, Catherine for
Catharine and Katherine
This way they will be easier to find when searching.
