Hello Lovelies, are any of you Scottish experts? I am doing a bit of digging for a friend and these records our out of my comfort zone. I did find a marvelous death 'stificate on Scotland's People but to my untrained eye it looks as though civil registration started in 1855. What exists before that? My victims seem to have had a number of offspring in Brigend of Lintrathen and Kingoldrum, wherever they might be. . Remember I have the spatial awareness of a glass of warm water. I'm tracking John Scott (the equivalent of Smith I think) and his wife Agnes Pettrie/Pettray. First child born 1779. Any suggestions about where to look and what to look for greatly appreciated as always.
