Scottish Parish records (again)
While waiting for a response to my first query, I have tries the following batch
These are baptismal records. As with a lot of Scottish records the mother's name is given as maiden name. The guidelines say do not assume child's name surname from other people therefore I would assume that the child's surname would be blank since child could be illegitimate. The example given only includes child's given name and there are no boxes for the child's surname. Does this mean that the surname box should be blank?
I know it sounds as if I am new to indexing but have been doing this for years here and in local archive. Since this is a new project there may be some wrinkles that still need to be ironed out.
P.S Having looked at all the examples I am wondering if the previous query is actually related to a baptismal record. Help! 🤨
