Parish and Other Registers
Compiled by Judith P. Reid
Parish registers are church records
that document births, marriages, and deaths. Few Scottish parish
registers have been published. Unpublished Scottish parish registers
are at the New Register House, Princes Street, Edinburgh 1, Scotland.
Microfilm copies of these records are available at the Family History
Library, Salt Lake City, Utah.
