"The various Records, whose contents are indexed in the list now printed, may be divided into three divisions — Genealogies, Birthbriefs and Funeral Escutcheons. The first consists of the Official Register of all Genealogies and Birthbriefs in Scotland, which commences on 3rd Decem- ber 1727. Volume I. ends on 15th January 1796 and Volume III. begins i6th August 1827 and is continued to date. Volume II. is not now in existence, if indeed it ever existed at all. It is not mentioned in an inventory of the Lyon Office Records in 18 19, but several pedigrees, which were intended to be recorded in it, are still preserved in draft in what is called the "Arboretum" or "collection of trees." The names of those as well as others, not now in the Lyon Office though the fees for recording them are entered in the cash book, have been added to the list. These volumes are referred to as G. I., II."
