civil parishes in Edinburgh


Active member
I am trying to sift through some information on one Alexander McDonald, born in Edinburgh in 1870. The family was living in the civil parish of Old Church when the 1871 census was taken...but none of the birth records give that place. Might there have been another name for this area?
Any thoughts?
I'd appreciate anyone's help. Thanks!
