This guide will introduce you to the records contained in ScotlandsPeople, the number one website for scottish records, and give you tips and advice on how to get the best results.
 

ScotlandsPeople is the number one website for you to research your Scottish ancestors.

Now hosting approximately 30 million images and 110 million index entries, the ScotlandsPeople database is one of the world’s largest resources of genealogical information and one of the largest single information resources on the web.

This guide will introduce you to the records contained there and give you tips and advice on how to get the best results.

Some of the records you will discover are: Statutory registers of birth, death, marriage, divorce, civil partnerships and dissolutions; church registers for the Church of Scotland, the Roman Catholic Church and other Presbyterian churches; census records; valuation rolls; and legal records covering wills and testaments, soldiers' and airmen's wills, military service tribunal appeals, and Coats of Arms. Access to such a wide range of basic records for a relatively cheap fee means we can all research from our home without the expense of hiring a search agent, ordering in many microfilms, or a trip to Scotland - as pleasant as that last option may be.

With some knowledge and practice you will become adept at locating records of relevance to your family and you will be well on your way with your research. Of course, not all records are available online. You will still need to track down your non-conformists, investigate land records, maps, cemeteries, electoral rolls, directories, poor law, military and other records, but ScotlandsPeople is a great place to launch the study of your families.
