Each result offers a transcript of relevant details from the source registers:
The transcripts are a product of the index project undertaken by Graham and Emma Maxwell. The project pertained to the Scottish Borders Prison Registers held at the National Archives of Scotland, comprising series HH21. The full transcription, which can be ordered for a small fee, includes such additional fields as height, weight, eye color, education, and religion, as well as information on the trial and sentencing. You can place an order by following the link in the Useful links and resources section. Additionally, some prison registers included photographs of the prisoners.
