This book is based overwhelmingly on primary sources–including testaments, bonds, sasines, and tacks–found mainly in the National Archives of Scotland in Edinburgh and, to a lesser extent, the Stirling Archives. The sources have yielded the following bits of information on the alphabetically arranged inhabitants: name, occupation, name of a next of kin (spouse, father, etc.), the kind of record, and the source. In all, Dr. Dobson has brought to light valuable information on 1,400 residents of Stirling that would otherwise have eluded genealogists for many more years.
