Ancestry adds Kikcaldy,Poor Law Records

The 11th most populous community in Scotland, Kikcaldy, Fife, has a population less than 50,000 souls. No wonder this new collection of the Poor Law Records for 1888-1912of the Abden Home Poor Law Institution, originally named the Kirkcaldy Combination Poorhouse, has only 2,690 entries.

Between the indexing and information on the images of the original records find
name, date of admission, date of discharge, reason discharged, occupation, gender, marital status, religion, age and perhaps date of death.
