240-1: marriages

County of Aberdeen - Strathdon
marriages 1672-1742

status: partially transcribed

revised 23 October 2009 


Note: Much of the filming of this volume has two pages per frame. Image or frame numbers appear at the top of each page to help place the records  (e.g., 0180A=top of frame 0180; 0180B=bottom of frame).  The usual order would be 0179A-0180A-1079B-0180B-0181A etc.  This does, however, vary from time to time to make things interesting.

This volume is very hard to read - much of it is quite faded, in various archaic handwriting styles, and, in places, largely disintegrated.  So, even more so than usual, please take these transcriptions with a grain of salt and plan to check out the original yourself.  Particularly doubtful or illegible text appears in brackets.

Marriages are blank April 1710–May 1731. Starting with 1731, the pages appear to be the kirk session records, as opposed to the regular registrations.
