Viv Dunstan's indexes


Welcome to my page of genealogical indexes. In each case I started the index because I thought it would help me in my genealogical research and there was not already an index. Rather than just search for the items I needed and possibly miss them in my haste, I decided instead to systematically index all of the items, thus increasing my chances of (eventually!) finding the things I was looking for. A side benefit is that the indexes can help fellow researchers. A drawback is that the indexing usually takes much longer than I had anticipated!

Many of my indexing projects concern the Scottish Borders, my home area. Commonly I come across records (even though I am now at a distance from the Borders) that could do with an index, and sometimes I am daft enough to compile one. I am always keen to hear suggestions for new indexes, particularly indexes for the Scottish Borders. Even if I cannot compile the indexes I may be able to persuade someone else to do so. So please contact me with comments and suggestions.

At the moment I have two major ongoing genealogical indexing projects:

With both of these projects I hope to extend my indexes further back in time.

An older index was the Index to Coldingham Mortcloth Records, 1694-1759.

Future indexes planned (some of which may be published) include the following:

For further information about any of these indexes (past, present or future) please email me. I am afraid that copies are not currently available for purchase, but I can do limited lookups for people.
