Re: Prison Records

Hi Frances, Does he show up in the 1891 census? Prisoners should show up in the censuses. Failing that, there may be prison records in the National Registers of Scotland (the part that used to be the National Archives of Scotland). It is worth having a rake round their online catalogues to see if th...

no deaths showed up specifically in Forgandenny Parish.
