After weeks of hard work Graham has finished indexing Volume 2 of the Jedburgh prison registers. We really hope this will add a bit of interest to your family trees and they are also very useful. For example, if your ancestors come to the Borders from Ireland and ended up in Jedburgh Prison it’s just possible you can get a place of birth from the prison register that you will not get anywhere else. The book is available to purchase on our website; here is a little information about it:
Jedburgh Prison Index, Volume 2 1848-1869 - This index is in the same format as our previous prison indices, and contains details of the crime the prisoner was accused or convicted of. It is a large volume, running to 4,061 entries. Many of the people of the Scottish Borders and beyond are recorded. The Jedburgh Prison Index, Volume 2 is available for £12.99, with our usual bulk discounts and postage rates for publications applying.
