This website is for sharing the results of my Melrose one-place study. The study grew out of my ancestral connections with Melrose parish in Roxburghshire, and is strongest for pre-1820, where I believe I can make the biggest contribution in terms of providing new resources. Transcripts and indexes of various records are already here, and longer term I hope to start to reconstruct the parish population, family by family, particularly for the 18th century. In addition I plan to work through the kirk session minutes, as much as I am able to, recording all references of potential interest.

New information about Melrose residents in the past is always welcome. Please feel free to contact me with information you are happy to share.
