Lighthouses and Lighthouse Keepers - New records on Scotlands People.

Post by WilmaM » Thu Jul 20, 2023 11:08 am

Scotland's people have just announced a new set of records on-line.

Lightkeeper registers (Lighthouses)
Search the registers of lightkeepers employed by the Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses (Northern Lighthouse Board) between 1837 and 1921.

The lightkeepers registers have two parts. The first part consists of individual pages for each lightkeeper. The second part consists of individual pages for each lighthouse, which lists all lightkeepers who served at each lighthouse. Choose the relevant selection below to search by either individual lightkeeper, or by individual lighthouse.

I have no known ones on my tree, but it will be great for those who do, as I understand it was often a family affair.

This is under a new section on SP : EMPLOYMENT RECORDS .
It will be interesting to see what occupations come next.
