*If the records survive, they have been digitised and indexed and made available online. No surviving records are thought to be missing from the collection – however this does not mean that all localities are covered by all records at all times.

**If the records were available to the Scottish Catholic Archives, they were digitised and indexed. In the post-1855 period, the collection of records is far from complete.
