Scottish church records

While the Church of England has enjoyed many centuries of supremacy in England, Scotland’s ecclesiastical history has been much more fractious, with Catholicism, Presbyterianism and various other groups vying to be the dominant faith in the country. As a consequence, family historians often find that parish registers for Scotland are less unified than those for England and Wales. However, within our Scottish parish registers you can often search records from a variety of different churches. Non-conformist registers are found within the collections we offer for many counties – for instance, there are rare Roman Catholic and Episcopal records for Aberdeenshire. for more click here
