I was wondering if you could give me the benefit of your experience and
answer the following question for me.
When I was searching the OPR films for Girvan at my local Family History
Center, I found large time gaps where no records were included on these
films. As an example, I know one of my relatives was married in Girvan
in 1816 but the film stops in 1796 and then has one entry from 1822
listed at the end of the document. What happened to the rest of the OPR
records for the time period 1797-1821? Same thing for deaths. I have
checked the Girvan cemetery for MI's from the Carrick, Ayrshire book
without success. I know these people died, so where would they have
disappeared to? Is there another place to research that I have missed?
For the benefit of other researchers that are only using the FHC's cd or
their web site, I found many births and marriages that were not listed
on the the FHC cd or their web site by looking at the films. Order the
