SR Births

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

The statutory registers comprise the official records of births, marriages and deaths in Scotland from 1 January 1855 when civil registration replaced the old system of registration by parishes of the Established Church (Church of Scotland). From 1855, registration became compulsory, regardless of religious denomination, and followed a standard format for each record type. More information was required in order to register an event, particularly at the start of the new system. for more click here

Commissioned Sea Officers of the Royal Navy, 1660-1815

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

This database is a listing of the officers who served in the Royal Navy between 1660 and 1815. Beside the name of each officer is his rank and the year in which he served in that rank. This list was compiled from a number of sources, which are listed at the beginning of this work. The idea to create such a list was conceived by David Bonner Smith, Admiralty Librarian. After his death the list was completed by R. N. College, Greenwich, in collaboration with the National Maritime Museum. The first few pages of this work should be consulted, as they contain some important information regarding the scope and nature of the list and its history, as well as the source information and an explanation of abbreviations used in the list. for more click here
