The Black book contains details of all the Scottish Genealogy Society's holdings relating to Scottish deaths and Scottish burials.
The collection is made up of the old parish death registers, lists of monumental inscriptions, some obituaries and a growing library of transcripts of Scottish death, burial and mortcloth accounts lists.
The years given indicate the period covered, but there may be blanks in the record between these dates.
Many of the monumental inscription lists and OPR transcripts are available for sale through the Scottish Genealogy Society’s online shop.
In addition the Scottish Genealogy Society holds monumental inscriptions for Cumbria and Northumberland.
