The following announcement was written by the folks at Deceased Online:
The collection comprises 200+ sites across the area in North East Scotland which includes nearly 250,000 burials/interments with around 600,000 records and data items.
The records comprise scans of registers and grave details identifying all those buried in each lair. Some cemetery section maps are also available and more will follow soon.
The records date back to 1615 and include people from all walks of life from agricultural and industrial workers to Queen Victoria’s personal servant and friend John Brown and Scotland’s first Wimbledon men’s singles champion Herbert Lawford.
