 Find your Scottish ancestors

This month, to help you find your kin in Dundee, you can download an index of Quaker births from across the whole of Scotland between 1647 and 1875. The index includes the name of the individual, their parents’ names, the year of birth, monthly or other meeting record location, and the page number in the original record. The index is to the Digest of Quaker (The Religious Society of Friends) Births, Marriages and Deaths of Scotland, 1647-1875. The original can be viewed in the National Records of Scotland. This resource is provided by Graham Maxwell Ancestry.
