Detailed List of the Old Parochial Registers of Scotland , Fife parishes A - C

The Detailed List of the Old Parochial Registers of Scotland, published 1872, provides information about the content of, and the gaps within, the Old Parish Registers (OPRs) of births / baptisms, marriages / proclamations, and deaths / burials.

It has two pieces of information for each parish in Scotland -

  1. the number of volumes containing the Old Parish Registers and the dates they embraced. This was further broken down into those volumes in the custody of the Registrar-General (covering periods up to 1819), and those then in the custody of the Local Registrar (covering the period 1820 - 1854).
  2. a list of 'Remarks relative to Blanks, Defects, Condition of Registers, etc.'

As an example, for Abdie parish:

No. Parish No. of Vols. In the custody of the Registrar-General
---------
Dates embraced
No. of Vols. In the custody of the Local Registrar
---------

400 Abdie

Since the publication of the book, all the Old Parish Registers have been taken into the care of the Registrar General in Edinburgh and some more information has been found, particularly in Kirk Session records, which adds to and has been included in the current known OPR records.

The information contained in the Detailed List'stables showing the number of volumes and the embracing dates (1. above) has been superseded by more up-to-date information provided by the Registrar General. This current information is given here. It is also in the 'Church Records' section on each parish page and is available as List of Old Parochial Registers in the "Help searching Scottish Ancestors" section of the Scotland's People website.

The 'Remarks relative to Blanks, Defects, Condition of Registers, etc.' (2. above) for the parishes in Fife is reproduced here in its entirety. Some later information has been provided by the National Records of Scotland. The later information and my editorial additions are given in [square brackets].

The original records have all been made available on microfilm, and the births / baptisms, marriages / proclamations, and deaths / burials are all available on the internet at the ScotlandsPeople website.
