New Mitchell Library databases

Thanks to Sheena Tait (@sheenatait on Twitter) for spotting the following. The Mitchell Library has several new free databases accessible on its website. These are:

Boer War Burgesses

This database details the admission of volunteers for the South African War 1900-1904, as Burgesses and Guild Brethren of Glasgow.

Chimney Sweeps

Chimney Sweeps Licenses for the Burgh of Glasgow 1852-1862 are indexed in this database.

Index to Militia Registers for Glasgow 1810-1831

The Militia Act of 1809 provided for aliment to militia-men who had children below the age of ten. The men themselves, their wives and children, and the principals for whom they were acting as substitutes (if any) are all indexed here.
