Scottish electoral registers on ancestry

Postby junkers » Thu Jun 21, 2018 8:31 pm

Has anyone had luck with these records for Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire that have been put on their website by ancestry. I cannot find any reference or mention of the on their site and I have a number of ancestors from the area. If someone does find them can they let us know.

It appears to be on the URL https://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=61479 - I found this thanks to Chris Paton's British Genes blog - no idea if it's in the A-Z Card Catalogue.

Adrian,
Many thanks, I have now found them. Not great transcriptions as the parishes are not listed just the people and addresses, albeit with the usual transcription errors!.

Have you tried:

https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

https://www.bayanne.info/Shetland/

https://forebears.co.uk/scotland/shetland

I have ancestry from between Aberdeen and Inverness and found that a lot of people migrated there from Shetland and the Orkney islands, so it's always worth a look. These sites will lead to lots of other sites that may be useful too. The Shetland and Orkney marriage records proved very useful, but be prepared to spend a lot of time looking through the records as it is difficult to find people if in a hurry.
