Births,Deaths and Marriages
in
Shetland



Updated with BDM to 13th December 2013

Welcome.This page links you to a database containing names from the Shetland Times BDM's for the years 1930,and 1988 to the present.There are also a small number of other years VERY partially covered.This information will hopefully help those following their family tree who do not have access to the latest issues of the Shetland Times.

I am indebted to Bernice Smith from Tauranga, NZ who has kindly allowed her massive database to be included here. Bernice's data is predominantly in lower case whereas mine is upper case.

As this is my first foray into web site design I would welcome any comments you may have,good or bad !

Not all the information from the transcripts is online,this has been done to speed up the download time.If you find the person you are looking for please email myself or Bernice for further information

I am researching the following families and would welcome any information you may have on them.

Anderson of Ulsta,Mid Yell

Linklater of Bressay

Smith of Cunningsburgh

Wishart of Whalsay


Those listed with no dates are generally mothers and fathers from "births" or spouses from "deaths"

The Gilbert Bain Hospital,Lerwick has been abbreviated to "GB" in most cases.

Most births from 1930 were listed in the Shetland Times as male or female as opposed to giving the child's name. This makes it rather difficult to know whether it is the one you are after,however most births were at home and the address is usually given.

If you come across any spelling or other errors please let me know

All dates are DD/MM/YYYY


Data entered up to issue dated 13th December 2013
