The MBGRG Ancestor Indices

Looking for Monumental Inscriptions, and photographs of your ancestor's memorial in Moray? Then the two data sets described below, containing some 92,500  named individuals may help you to track them down!

"The Forgotten Tombstones of Moray" - This on-line data index relates to buried stones from selected churchyards which have been de-turfed by the Group, fully recorded, and re-turfed. Transcripts were subsequently published in the booklets of the same name. Occasionally, where only a limited number of  buried stones have been uncovered, the transcript may be included in the standard MI publication, rather than in the 'Forgotten Tombstone' series e.g.  Dundurcas, Macallan. Such stones are identifiable as buried by having an alphabetic rather than numeric stone reference. These stones are no longer accessible to the general public. Additional data from other graveyards will be added as it becomes available.

Graveyards currently included in this data set are Alves, Bellie, Birnie, Burghead, Dipple, Drainie Old (RAF Lossiemouth), Essil, Kinneddar, Kirkhill, Lhanbryde Old Churchyard, Rafford Churchyard, Urquhart Churchyard & Spynie Old Churchyard.
"Monumental Inscriptions of some Moray Burial Grounds" - This on-line data index relates to other monuments, which were, and generally still are accessible. Full MI transcripts are to be found in the relevant booklets published by either the Aberdeen & North East Scotland Family History Society, or by the Moray Burial Ground Research Group. The above index may contain additional data, where continuous ongoing research has unearthed previously 'lost' stones, or where text regarded previously as illegible, has been interpreted, since publication. Photographic records of all surviving memorials included in this index are held by the MBGRG.

The number of sites we have researched to date, either in whole or in part, continues to grow, and is now too lengthy to include on this page.  For a detailed list of all sites, see 'Research Progress', or the Burial Ground Status (Google) Map.

 Please check regularly - other sites  are due to be added soon.

Please read the Help notes included with each data set, for further advice.
