SKU: 8113 Categories: , ,
Genealogical Publishing Company


The Hebrides are those islands lying off the coast of the Western Highlands of Scotland. They form parts of the counties of Ross and Cromarty, Inverness, and Argyll, and contain thirty-six parishes. Genealogical research in this region can be challenging because the parish registers, which are the backbone of Scottish genealogical research, only exist for about a quarter of the Hebridean parishes before 1800. In the absence of the registers, researchers have to rely on alternative sources, few of which are available online. This book is designed to facilitate research for those living far from the source material in Scotland. In all, this original source sheds light on between two and three thousand persons possessing a connection to the Scottish Hebrides between 1725 and 1775.
