Records

What records are in the site?

Please read our what records are in the site page.

When will kirk session and other church court records be available?

More than 6,000 Church of Scotland kirk session, presbytery and synod records have now been added to the site via the Virtual Volumes system.

We will continue to make additional church court records available gradually, including records from other Presbyterian churches that either joined or re-joined the Church of Scotland at various points. If you are interested in any records that appear in the NRS online catalogue and are described as being imaged and available on the search room Virtual Volumes system, but that are not visible here, you can contact us to find out if they are eligible to be added to Virtual Volumes.
