1851 Census, Tain, Ross & Cromarty, Scotland

Partial Transcriptions

The following have been transcribed by
Janet Connochie from microfilmed copies of the 1891 Census of Scotland. The films were obtained through my local Family History Center.

Film Number 0103758 - 1851 Census, Ross & Cromarty, includes parish #082 Tain

I wish to acknowledge my use of an Index to the parish of Tain in the 1851 census. It was published by the Highland Family History Society. It enabled me to offer to do these lookups, and indeed, I would not have ordered the film if I had not seen the index, I was browsing through all the indexes available at my local FHC for Connochies, when I came across an entry which rang a bell, and got me one generation further back.
