Civil Registration BDM
« on: Friday 19 June 20 08:42 BST (UK) »


A question please........civil registration BDM Scotland....and specifically the first year, 1855 -

I think I saw on Rootschat that there was a detail recorded on the .....birth?....marriage?....record, that was only recorded that first year.....and not subsequently.

Which record?......which detail?   Sound familiar?

Or I might have just imagined the whole thing.

Was it at death of parent all the children recorded with ages and married names?

I definitely got that once for someone.  It was not my family, so would take a bit of searching.

There were many details in 1855 registration but it proved so cumbersome that changes were made the following year. Scotland's People have details of exactly what you can find on various certificates.

Thank you both for your response. Direction to Scotlands people....for birth, records -

Year and place of marriage...previous issue recorded as number of boys / girls..... living / deceased......

...birth order of the new baby.......age and birthplace for parents.

What wonderful information...if only for that one year.

You get the date and place of parents' marriage on all Scottish birth certificates in 1855 and from 1860 onwards.
