Historic Stirling Poor Relief Records

Stirling Council Archives has uploaded indexes to the Poor Relief records it holds for 14 local parishes : Aberfoyle, Balfron, Balquhidder, Buchanan, Callander, Drymen, Fintry, Gargunnock, Killearn, Kippen, Logie, St Ninians, Stirling and Strathblane.  Various records were kept regarding the local poor, including records of applications, registers of the poor and parish minutes.   Available as PDF files, the searchable documents can reveal the full name of the person who applied for relief, along with their place of origin, marital status and occupation.
Original records, held by the archives, can provide additional information about those who can be found in the indexes.  Visit the Stirling Council Archives for more information, or to see what other treasures they have available.
