Birth, death and marriage registers
Each minister would have had his own way of keeping track of the baptisms, marriages and deaths in his parish. These documents formed part of records of the particular kirk session. After the 1854 Registration of Births, Deathsand Marriages (Scotland) Act the lists of birth, deaths and marriages were separated from the rest of the kirk session records to form the Old Parish Registers (OPR series), which can now be searched via the ScotlandsPeople website. Sometimes one can still find some birth, deaths and marriages amongst the kirk session records, as the posers below will highlight.
