Minutes and other records of the Kirk Sessions, Presbyteries, Synods and General Assembly. All have been digitised

Secession Churches

These, although still Presbyterian, broke away from the Church of Scotland at various stages during the 18th century, culminating in the largest break in 1843, resulting in the Free Kirk. After that, they all began to join up again! Some, but not all, of their records have been digitised
