The Churches around Drumlamph

 
Churches can provide important information for researchers. Church records can provide us with dates of baptisms. marriages and deaths, and gravestones can reveal details of other family members etc.

These pages were added to provide a little information about the churches around Drumlamph, and let the descendants of Drumlamph families see what the Churchs look like today.

During July 2003 I photographed all the Churches and graveyards, of all denominations, in the area surrounding Drumlamph. These are the Churches where most Drumlamph families worshiped, and where they were Baptised, Married and Buried.

The Churches and Graveyards photographed are as follows;-  (To view the photographs click on the heading or camera opposite)
