The Scottish Genealogy Society has created this index for the Roslin Communion Rolls 1829-1855.
Communion Rolls are list of parishioners who attended communion. In preparation for receiving this sacrament, the Kirk Session would hand out communion tokens to the communicant recipients. Without these tokens, parishioners were unable to participate in the sacrament. Occasionally records were kept of the distribution of the tokens however, more commonly it was the attendance of the communion that was recorded. These records are referred to as Communion Rolls.
If you are unable to find your relative on your first search you can try searching using their husband’s name. For example, if your search is unsuccessful for Mary Smith and she was married to John Smith, try Mrs John Smith or alternatively Mrs Smith.
Entries also use titles as opposed to first names. For example, if your search is unsuccessful for William Smith, try Mr Smith.
