McA/I/Ninch in the Old Parochial Registers Index for Scotland


Last October, in Salt Lake City, Lillian researched the “Old Parochial Registers” Index, which is on micro-fiche at the LDS Library there (the OPR Index is “British Crown Copyright”, and the originals of the church registers are now in the possession of the Scottish Records Office, Edinburgh, Scotland).


The Old Parochial Registers (OPR) Index is an index of about 10.5 million names listed in old Church of Scotland (Presbyterian) parish registers, and contains entries dating from the late 1500’s up through 31 December 1854. Information in the index includes given name(s), surname, parents or spouse, and christening or marriage date and place.


Church of Scotland records (old parochial registers) may be the best source of family information before 1855, which was when civil registration began in Scotland. They may include as much as 60 percent of the population of Scotland during that time, according to the OPR guide at the LDS Library.


This report is a hybrid, including all McA/I/Ninch entries from the OPR Index [but not McInnis(h)], augmented with some Civil Registration info (all McA/Ininch info, but McNinch info up to 1860 only; civil data was extracted from LDS International Genealogical Index (tm), 1988 Edition, Version 2.10).


The list below is in full alphabetical order, surname-by-surname, so check all spellings when looking for a particular individual. The three event codes are B, born, C, christening, and M, marriage.
