These records were transcribed from the assessments of the inhabitants of the parish of Dundee, created between 1822 and 1839. There are eleven volumes all together; therefore, your ancestor’s name might be repeated. Before 1845, responsibility for the relief and support of the poor fell to the parish and the kirk sessions. The assessments provided the amounts a person could contribute to poor funds.
