Eddrachillis (Sutherland) Poor Register 1845-1916
« on: Tuesday 27 March 18 13:08 BST (UK) »
A new publication from the Scottish Genealogy Society: Eddrachillis (Sutherland) Poor Register 1845-1916. The information contained in the records for Poor Registers is nothing short of amazing. Not only does it give full name, age and current address but it also gives place of birth, marital status with husband’s/wife’s name & age, any children (names & ages) and earnings for the household. It also makes little remarks like: “Has a free house and a small lot of land”. Compiled from five volumes held in the Highland Archives, Inverness (Ref: CS/6/6/16-20) by Stuart Farrell, FSA Scot, at £4.00 (plus P&P) this is a bargain!

This publication is available from our Family History Centre at 15 Victoria Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2JL or from our website:
