FreeCEN Scotland — Argyllshire

Scottish thistle FreeCEN logo

Much of the work for Argyllshire has been done by previous coordinators Gabrielle Baker and then Jim Baird, together with their teams of volunteers — we thank them all for their efforts.

Argyllshire 1841 is complete (101,338 records), online and searchable.

Argyllshire 1851 is finished for the present — we have have transcribed all the images we have.

Argyllshire 1861 is finished for the present — we have transcribed all the images we have.

Argyllshire 1871 is now complete, with the final piece going online in November 2017. A big thank-you to all who have worked to put this census year online!

If you have images of the census for any of the paused parishes (1851 or 1861), we would be very pleased to hear from you. Similarly, if you have made a transcription of any of our ‘missing’ parishes, do get in touch. Thank you!
