    Hi Andrew, do you have the more up to date church magazines for the website and could old ones be left on as well?

    I was wondering if anyone would be able to point me in the right direction ?

    she had a child Roesanna Maxwell born in 1883 16th April. no father was recorded on her birth certifacate.
    I have been led to believe Maggie lived in the area all her life and would like to know if she died there and where she is buried as i would like to visit her grave as i am in the area at the end of this month and would appreciate any help i can get. Thank you

    Hi, do you have a record of the previous preachers? My husband’s ancestor John Walker, born in 1645, was a preacher there but we don’t know what dates. Would love to find out more info before we travel there later this month from USA.
