The parish minister or the session clerk usually assumed responsibility for maintaining the registers, but since there was no standard format employed, record keeping varied enormously from parish to parish and also from year to year.
A nice list of historical sites, buildings and artifacts within the parish is available online as part of the locally produced Dumfries & Galloway Gazetteer.
