We're pretty excited about our most
recent undertaking, and we hope that you will be, too!
The intent of the Nisbet Records Database is to collect official
source references pertaining to Nisbet life events (e.g. Births, Baptisms,
Marriages, Deaths), assemble them in a central location, and provide a means of searching
these records over the Internet.
We've begun by implementing a database containing Scottish death records, and will soon
expand the scope of our endeavour to include Scottish marriage records. Eventually we
intend to establish databases for other events and other countries, e.g. Ireland, England,
the US, Canada, etc.
Our initial offering of Scottish death records is by no means comprehensive - it is
based on the results of personal research in our quest to discover as much information as possible regarding our
This is where you can help. The value of the database will be directly related to the
number and reliability of the records it contains. We encourage you to send us any
references to official records (pertaining directly to Nisbets) that you may have
uncovered in the course of your research. Sources such as parish registers, government
indices, LDS film numbers, headstone inscriptions, etc. are the types of references that
we are interested in collecting. While your great-aunt Melba's slightly hazy recollection
of the date of 3rd-cousin Bertie's second marriage (or was it 2nd-cousin Gertie's third
marriage?) may be of great interest to members of your immediate family, it doesn't
provide a very reliable foundation for the research being conducted by others.
You can submit suitable references to us by sending an email to the webmaster. Before submitting a reference
for inclusion in a particular database please go to the appropriate search page, perform a
basic search, and examine the fields that are displayed as a result - this will help
you to identify the type of information that we are looking for.
Please help us build what
has the potential to become an invaluable resource for those pursuing their
family history and heritage!
