Edrom parish - testificates book

Borders Family History Society has news of a new book from the Scottish Genealogy Society entitled Edrom Parish - Certificates of Character - Given and Received. The book looks at the certificates, also known in Scotland as "tesitificates", which provide evidence of character for those moving to a new parish for work or other opportunities. The book covers the period 1797-1815 for those given such certificates from the minister of Edrom parish, and 1796-1854 for those who brought them to the parish from elsewhere.
