NON-CONFORMIST CHURCH RECORDS IN ANGUS AND DUNDEE

Finding an ancestor who was non-conformist, who did not follow the tenets of the Established Church of Scotland, can often be a difficult task. Sometimes non-conformist families registered baptisms and marriages with the Church of Scotland, and entries for these may even indicate to which church they belonged. However, if you are unable to find your ancestors in Church of Scotland records, when evidence points to their having been resident in a particular parish, then use the Statistical Accounts of Scotland to determine the denomination of other churches in the area. Once you know which church or churches existed at the time, you can then search for their records. for more click here
