Index to Scottish Church records (CD or fiche). Note, you may search by Given name separately from searching by Surname. A good option, for baby names such as Philadelphia Brown or
British Isle Vital Records Index CDs
If you wish to know whether LDS has microfilms for specific congregations, then use FH Library Catalogue. One route being Keyword search- tried KIRK SESSION STRATH SCOTLAND for starters. No
hits. But this "hit" may help, the description is a bit bare:
Family History Library Catalogue
Inverness kirk-session records, 1661-1800
Mitchell, Alexander (Main Author)
Also on microfiche. Salt Lake City : Filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah, 1991. 5 microfiches.
