OPR 240/2: Marriages
County of Aberdeen - Strathdon
revised 22 April 2005
 

Note: These are on small sheets of paper, with the records grouped under the month and then (for the most part) numbered along the right side. The way the pages appear on the LDS film is not in chronological order. So, pages that were clearly originally in order 1 2 3 4, appear on film in order 1 3 2 4, etc. Rather than try to duplicate the order and the format, I've simplified.  Since the 1753 records were not numbered, I have retained the original format for them.
