Moving parish

Moving parish

When a person moved from one parish to another, would they have to present any sort of documentation to the local parish church and would the church record this in any sort of record such as the kirk session minutes? I'm trying to track down where a male ancestor came from and I was wondering if there was a chance of anything appearing in the session minutes.

Many thanks
Lyndsay

I would imagine that would depend upon when they moved, where in the world they lived, and their religion.
