Detailed List of the Old Parochial Registers of Scotland , Fife parishes D - L

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 Kennoway 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
---------
Dates embraced
434 Kennoway

B. M. and D. 1820-54

B.  and M.  prior to 1654 intermixed with other matters. Both blank Sept. 1654 - Feb. 1691; then recorded in parallel cols. till Nov. 1724. M. blank 1724 - April 1737, from which date to Jan. 1740 there is a separate Record of M. after B. for June 1737. B. and M. again recorded in parallel cols. 1740 - 1770; but blank June 1751 - April 1756. Separate records of B. and M. from Jan. 1771. After July 1765, entries of Contracts or proclamations only.
D.  (Burials) blank Jan. 1755 - Feb. 1762, Dec. 1773 - Jan. 1776.

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.

p>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 above) has been superseded by more up-to-date information provided by the Registrar General.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 General Register Office for 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.

[The Old Statistical Account (written in 1790) states "The barrow in Forthar is said to have been a regular place of burial, and to have had a church or chapel near it. But of this no vestiges are now extant."  This would appear to imply a place of antiquity, rather than one until recently used for burials. The "Forther's Burial-place" referred to in the OPR therefore possibly refers to a part of the church or churchyard.]
