Scottish Marriage Index
Just catching up after Saturday’s SAFHS Conference, looking through some of the leaflets I picked up.
The Scottish Marriage Index, a unique and really useful database, is made available by the Anglo-Scottish Family History Society and can be viewed online at www.anglo-scots.mlfhs.org.uk. It lists Scots who married away from Scotland.
Searching the database is easy. It’s another source of information on Scots, to help you break through those brick walls and maybe solve some family mysteries. Contributions are always welcome.
One of my Scotts – a 3-greats uncle moved away to England and married there and I haven’t been able to track him down yet. This database is a great place to start searching and will surely grow as more people contribute their Strays – and hopefully, one day, I’ll track down my Scott.
