Created for all who are interested in their ancestors from this beautiful county or who simply love Sutherland. In order to see the latest version of this page please refresh all pages which you have visited previously. Many links have been updated. 

URGENT Note: to contact me only use this email address.  My previous email address has had to be removed.  Each page in this website has my new email address where you see Contact Me.  Anyone who has my previous tiscali address in their address book please update it with my new one. 

Our burial ground section now has new indexes for all parishes.  Very useful.

This website depends on those who join the Burial Ground section.  Only costs £6 for two year membership giving you not only site of hundreds of photographs and transcriptions but the knowledge you are helping to keep this site on line with no adverts.

The Parishes
Each parish of the county has its own section within the site with lots of useful information, links to websites, etc.  At the end of each parish section you will find a page headed Families.  In here are links to those families being researched by visitors to this site.   These links contain a huge amount of genealogical information and may even lead you to a relative.  Links to family trees related to each parish have also been included.  Tabs above will take you where you wish to go.

Without the support of all those who help me cover the costs of this huge website it would not be here. Each year costs increase as they do with everything nowadays.  Every donation large or small helps.  A click on the button below is the simple way to help.  Thank you for your continuing support.   

The Burial Grounds of Sutherland

In Scotland official registration of Births, Deaths and Marriages did not begin until 1855.  Prior to that date we do have to rely on the Old Parish Registers of the Church which unfortunately are not always easily found and when they are can be very difficult to read.  One very good source of information has always been gravestones.  I, with the help of many, have over the past years visited every burial ground in the county and have photographed as many stones as possible.  With the help of earlier recordings and the old records this site now has a large burial ground section with photographs.  Further information on the BURIAL page.  

Note: to all those who joined the Burial Ground section or last made a donation towards the upkeep of the website prior to 15th January 2013 your membership has now expired.  If you wish to continue supporting this website please either renew your membership now on our Burial page or simply use the button above to make a donation.  Either will be very welcome.
