This is a complete list of Old Parish Registers which is available at ScotlandsPeople.  The list is sorted by County and Parish, showing the years a Register is available for. We have also shown the main towns and villages in each Parish. Old Parish Registers tended to stop at 1854, as from 1855 statutory registration of Births, Marriages and Deaths came into effect and these Registers are also available at ScotlandsPeople. However not all Parish Registers are available and many have been lost or destroyed.

Generally years are shown as a range e.g. 1777-1854. This does not mean there are records for each year and there may be gaps. Where we know of substantial gaps or that records are only available for specific years, we have shown those years.

The names of some parishes have changed over the years. We have a list of some of the changes here.
