We have endeavoured to make our census transcription publications as accurate as possible, by carefully comparing entries for the same families in different census years to highlight errors and anomalies. Although this is time-consuming, the reward is ever more accurate information for tricky searches. Careful note is made of women who change between their married and maiden names, and illegitimate children who change between their fatherís and motherís surnames. In these cases the indivdual is indexed under both surnames.
We have also transcribed various parish records, which have not been widely available until this time as they are not part of the already indexed and available body of Church of Scotland Old Parish Registers (known as OPRs). See the respective county pages for more details. Another ongoing project is to index the surviving prison registers for prisons in the Scottish Borders and Dumfries & Galloway which are at the National Records of Scotland in Edinburgh (for more information on the prison indexes click here). We have completed nine indexes so far, covering Greenlaw, Hawick, Jedburgh, Kelso, Peebles and Selkirk prisons. For details on how to buy these, please see the respective county pages.
