The KILSYTH REGISTERS

These following few pages are extracted from photocopies of microfiche of the original registers of pages that contained some of my ancestors. They are my own extractions, and I have tried to read some parts with much difficulty, so take them as my best effort. You may find errors in my interpretation, so to be really certain, please check them yourself.

One day I will add some more, when time permits.
