The site is easily navigated by utilizing the side tool bar to search the various databases. Once you have opened one of the PDF documents you can easily search the document by typing the surname that you are searching for in the find feature of Adobe Reader located at the top of the opened document page like the example to your right.

If you are interested in searching this site click here to be redirected to this site to begin your search of these documents. As with all transcribed documents, I would suggest that you confirm the information that you see with the original transcripts if possible as transcription errors can and do occur. Some of the transcribed databases provide the film number from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City for you to confirm the data.

Thank you to the editor for placing this information on line for use. This is a great site and worth checking into if you have Scottish Heritage.
