Discover Scottish Kirk Session Records

Presenter: Chris Paton

Discover Scottish Kirk Session Records

In this session, genealogist Chris Paton will discuss the year's most significant genealogical records release in Scotland, the kirk session records compiled by presbyterian parishes across the country, which are now available to consult on ScotlandsPeople.

Chris will explain what the kirk session was, how it fitted into the church courts hierarchy, and how the records presented can assist the genealogist.

In addition to discussing the new system that is now available on ScotlandsPeople, Chris will also discuss the records not available online, and show how to locate the relevant volumes that may help with research.

From antenuptial fornication and illegitimacy cases, to church census and vaccination records, the session will be called to order, and you are requested to 'compear' before it.

Our speaker: Chris Paton
