More Aberdeenshire records added to Deceased Online

From Deceased Online (www.deceasedonline.com):

We've started a long project to upload all burial records for all of the 200+ burial grounds managed by Aberdeenshire Council

Records for 20 burial grounds have just been added to the database joining those for Peterhead's historic St Peter's Churchyard and main cemetery.

The records will comprise scans of original registers (example above) many of which contain a wonderful range of information; grave details identifying all those buried in each lair; cemetery section maps.

Records - which date back to the early 17th Century - will be added over the next months and we hope to complete the entire collection by late spring.

The cemeteries are as follows:

Belhelvie
Essie
Forbes
Glass
Huntley
Kinnior
Kinnernie
Leslie
Midmar
Oyne
Rhynie
Ruthven
Slains
Tullynessle
Wallakirk
Ythanwells

(With thanks to Deceased Online)
