Dunfermline Registers on Ancestry

Ancestry has added a new collection to its site - Fife, Scotland, The Dunfermline Register, 1829-1859.

From the site:

The Dunfermline Register, years 1829–1832, 1834–1838, 1842, and 1851–1858, are contained in this database. Districts covered by the Registers, which are a cross between an area directory and an almanac, are the western district of Fife, Clackmannan and Kinross, and the Culross district of Perthshire. Listings include local nobility and knights, clergy, justices of the peace, Freeholders (persons who have been granted rights to regulate local business and trade), members of parliament, police commissioners, dates of market fairs, roads, pricing lists for agricultural produce, coach schedules, ferry passage schedules, horticultural societies, banks, religious societies, and many other things pertinent to the community.

Further information, and access to the collection, is at http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=1954
