Some Ancestor Places
in Kintyre Scotland

Several years ago, when I first began to do family history research, I became interested in learning where ancestors and their families had lived. This chart is the information I collected at the time. In general this information is from the Old Parish Records.

Place Names with Grid Reference Number per Landranger Map #68

For old map of these locations go to and insert the location in the search box. (Just the digits, not the characters, NR).

You can find an explanation to the Ordnance Survey Grid at their web page. The National Grid.

If you would like to search for a recent picture of any of the places, go to Geograph.Org and enter the Grid Reference in the search box there. Instead of the long reference number used for "old-maps", it will be necessary to use NR in place of the first digit and follow the NR with the next two digits. For example: in place of 169000, 612000 use: NR6912. If you get too many results, change to the advanced search tab and change the distance to within a reduced amount such as 1km in place of the 30km used for a simple search.
