Description

These birth, marriage and death notices were published in the Glasgow Herald newspaper 4 years before statutory registration of these events in Scotland started in January 1855.

The column headings on the Births spreadsheet comprises the Surname, the sex and code of the birth, the date of birth, the address, a parents name, Notes and the date of the entry in the Glasgow Herald.

The column headings on the Marriages spreadsheet comprises Surname and First name of each partner, in alphabetical order, his or her parent’s name, occupation and any notes, then his or her spouse’s Surname and First name followed by the marriage date and an address, then finally, the date of the entry in the Glasgow Herald.  This means each couple is recorded twice in the spreadsheet.

The column headings on the Deaths spreadsheet comprises Surname and First name of the deceased, the Maiden Surname & Status (married, unmarried or widow) for women, the date of death, the address, Notes, the Spouse or Father’s Name and Status, then finally, the date of the entry in the Glasgow Herald.
