With records of births, marriages, and deaths before and after 1855 and census returns from 1841 to 1891 at the first-named location, and wills, testaments, deeds, and church records at the other, the author guides you, record by record, to a successful conslusion of your search. Five especially useful appendices follow, including a glossary of occupations and terms, a list of useful addresses, and most important of all, a 43-page list of Scottish parishes, counties, and commissariots. This appendix alone is worht the price of the book as it lists every parish in Scotland by district number, county, and commissariot, showing the date of the earliest birth or marriage record in the Old Parish Registers and the earlies date of testaments or inventories.
