Extracts of Parish records
I have transcribed some Parish Records that contain birth and marriage information for individuals who do not interest me. Hopefully, they will be of use to someone else. If your ancestors came from Methven (1835) in Perthshire, Errol (1805) and (1827) in Perthshire,Carnwath (1854) and (1825) in Lanarkshire, or Libberton (1788) in Lanarkshire, then read on. In some places the old writing is hard to read, but I've done the best I can.
