How to Get Full Details for a Marriage Entry

   web site:


You can search in the indexes found at  ScotlandsPeople to a comprehensive set of a wide range of historical official records held by the National Records of Scotland, and not only for the marriage registers found indexed on my web site(s).  The National Records of Scotland maintains a searchable index for statutory registers, church records, census records, and valuation rolls, among other records.  The explanatory and search pages are free, and viewing of an individual entry is on a 'pay-per-view' basis.  A paper copy of an official extract can be ordered electronically for delivery by ordinary post at the statutory fee.

In my opinion, it is a great idea to acquire from the NRS a full extract of your "record of interest".  If any changes or corrected entries have been made by the Registrar General for Scotland in the last 30 or 40 years, you will want to know about them.  If you are like me, you would agree that there can be nothing as rewarding as seeing the actual record for yourself - especially since my web site has not given you the actual date of marriage anyway!

My transcriptions on this web site are accurate to the best of my ability.

 Ordering Family History Library microfilms:

The Genealogical Society of Utah, by courtesy of the Registrar General for Scotland, put the following years of marriage registers on microfilm. . .
here is a summary of the FHL microfilm numbers, if you would like to order the microfilms for yourself to view images of the actual registers, from
 your local Family History Center Library :

Old Parish Registers  (births/baptisms/marriages/some deaths)...

  approx. 17th-century to 1819  ~  film #990,512 
  1820 to 1854  ~  film #990,513

OR, a recent filming by the Genealogical Society of Utah combined these two

 Or, are you my cousin?

 Ask me if I am your cousin! 
Perhaps you are a cousin, connected to my South Ronaldsay Line?
Contact me and maybe I can help.  Otherwise, unless we may be related, please know that I will be unable to provide complete marriage data for all of the entries which I have indexed on this web site, per my agreement with the GROS.

Thank you for visiting my web site!
  I would enjoy hearing your feedback!    - Lisa.
