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. https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/virtual-volumes

 

They have a guide to the Sessions https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/record-guides/kirk-session-records

 

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.

 

 

Best wishes

Andrew
