Has anyone any experience of looking up Edinburgh police records? My Alexander McKAY from Sutherland joined the Glasgow Police in 1875, and his police record in the Glasgow City Archives says that when he joined he was 'formerly Edinburgh Police and 93rd Regiment'. As the family say Alexander knew Indian dialect and the 93rd were in India up until 1870, I am presuming that he came back to Edinburgh Castle with the regiment and then joined the local police.

HOw did you get access to the Glasgow Police records? It's been on my 'to do' list for a long time, so is there a simple way?

I must confess I got a very good Glasgow based researcher to look them up for me as he was doing some other work for me which I needed doing in a hurry before going to a big family reunion in Texas. Not sure what the rules are about advertising so will send you his address privately
