Exploring church and military records

A focus on church and military records

Archivists and librarians at the Mitchell Library based in Glasgow, Scotland share a selection of church and military documents held at the Glasgow City Archives.

Records such as these are available in many archives and libraries around the world and provide important birth, marriage and death information but can also give additional details such as photographs and military service dates.

While much data is now available online, it’s important to remember that you may need to make a trip to an archive or library to access physical records.
