Free Online Parish Register Search
We have now made available an online searchable database of all the parish registers we have indexed so far, plus some additional material not yet published in book form. The records we have indexed (taken from Kirk Session material of the Church of Scotland and other Presbyterian churches) are not part of the Church of Scotland Old Parish Registers (or OPRs) as found on the Scotland's People site, and therefore contain many records of births, marriages and deaths which are not to be found anywhere else.

Free Online Prison Record Search
We have now made available an online searchable database for all the prison registers we have indexed so far (Dumfries 1841-1848; Greenlaw 1840-1862; Jedburgh 1843-1869; Kelso 1844-1862; Peebles 1848-1862; and Selkirk 1828-1840, 1853-1878). This index does not contain all the information in our prison index books, such as the crime, but should enable you to identify someone in the records and get the relevant reference so that you can obtain more information.

NEW! - Free Online Paternity Case Search
We have now made available an online searchable database for paternity cases in Sheriff Courts in the south of Scotland. At present, the index covers the years 1831-1892 at Jedburgh, representing all surviving 19th century volumes of the Register of Decrees for that court and also some additional cases indexed from the original court papers (processes) from 1822-1852. We have also added cases from Dumfries for the years 1830-1867 and 1884-1897; and Peebles for 1837-1914. Cases afer 1914 have not been added to the index for privacy reasons. Other years and Sheriff Courts will soon be added, so please keep checking this page for updates. We gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Margaret Hamilton in preparing this index.
