Each record contains a transcript of the original source material. The amount of information varies but you can find out the following about your ancestor:
Their spouse’s name
The date of the marriage
The place of the marriage
The names of the bride and the groom’s parents
These records are not intended to be a comprehensive collection of all marriages that have taken place in Scotland over the period. Some places are not covered and the date range varies from place to place.
The transcripts refer to batch and film numbers. Both of these refer to material held in the Family History Library in the States.
Film numbers refer to individual microfilms which often contain copies of original court or church records, as well as material from other repositories. You can find out more about a specific film number by searching the Family History Library Catalogue on the FamilySearch website, (see useful links)
Batch numbers refer to records extracted from microfilms. Batches can be grouped into specific type of record (births, baptisms, marriages etc) so multiple film numbers may be included in a single batch number.
Findmypast displays a “People with the same last name as this source” function in order to help locate related records in the same film and/or batch. This function can also reveal the records for family members included in the same original source. For some records, this will uncover additional entries for the same individual but with slightly different information.
