Genealogical Enquiries

The main purpose of this website is to provide information about the life and Christian witness of Rutherglen Old Parish Church.  However, since its publication, numerous genealogical enquiries have been received.  Unfortunately, it is very difficult for the Old Parish to respond to such enquiries for a variety of reasons, namely:

You may find the booklet Burying Ground - Monumental Inscriptions - Rutherglen Old Parish Churchyard by J Scott Fairie to be helpful. The booklet may be obtained from the Glasgow and West of Scotland Family History Society, Unit 13, 32 Mansfield Street, Glasgow, G11 5QP, Scotland.

If the information contained in the following paragraphs does not help with your enquiries, you may wish to contact the Old Parish Church but we do ask your understanding if it takes some time to respond to your enquiry.

It is hoped that the following information may be of some help to those seeking genealogical information:
