Taking The New Scottish Death/Burials Index for A Spin

Hello All -

Well, I have just given the new Scotlandpeople's new death and burial index for a test drive. I must warn everyone that these indexes do not have much information on them. The index itself even says it in a warning link for those who are about to use it.

It works the same as the rest of the indexes. It even has the downloadable image file as well, which is great. Not too much else to say really. It just works like the rest of the database. It is another good addition to search, even though there is not much info to obtain from it. Many people did not register the burial/death. Likewise many parishes didn't bother either. Hence, don't be disappointed if you don't find much. These records are what they are, and they are very sparce.

Just thought I would let everyone know what it is like working with it. Even though it doesn't have much in the way of genealogical information, it is still a good resource that can be used.
