Kirk sessions online

Andrew Millard

ScotlandsPeople website has published online for free over a million images of Kirk Session records. These are not indexed, but this is a game-changer in terms of access.


They have a guide to the Sessions


Records don't survive for all parishes but sometimes they do survive for times and places where the parish registers are lost. These records are an excellent resource for researching the lives of ordinary people.
