Aberdeenshire Poor Relief Records

According to Chris Paton's BritishGENES blog, indexes to Aberdeenshire poor relief records applications are freely accessible on the Aberdeen and North East Scotland Family History Society website at http://www.anesfhs.org.uk/databank/plindex/plindex.php. The period covered is 1845-1900 for surviving registers of Aberdeenshire, Banffshire, Kincardine and Moray. The records are applications, general register and children's separate register. 

Information returned is sparse, it is an index. For example: Alexander Reid; Peterhead; Gen Reg (AC 6/64/14) p988; 1892. The full register entry can be obtained from the Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Archives. Check out their additional Poor Relief holdings here.
