Baptisms – Scotland

Parish baptism registers are the principal source of information about children prior to the introduction of civil registration in 1855. Please read the notes below the table and at About these records.

To search for records, use the filters at the foot of the table, either individually or in combination, some of which might be filled when the page is opened. Putting a space before or after a filter term can be of help in refining the results. Use Tab and Shift-Tab to move between the filters.

Records less than 100 years old will be hidden from display unless there is evidence that the person listed has died – to enquire about one of these hidden records please use the Contact Us page.

Comments in square brackets are not present in the original records.
