  1. Can’t find the Scottish records you need in Ancestry, MyHeritage, FamilySearch etc? That’s because they don’t have the records. And they won’t be getting them.
    2. Frankly, why should they, when they are perfectly available at ScotlandsPeople – Parish BMD from the 1500s to 1854 (including Catholic and Secession Churches as well as Church of Scotland) Statutory BMD from 1855 Wills & Testaments (which are not the same thing!) Censuses from 1841 to 1911 Valuation rolls from 1855 Coats of Arms Photographs and illustrations Maps and plans …and more.
    3. There is even more at the companion site ScotlandsPlace, which is not just geographical but has Land and Tax Rolls and more records.
    4. How to use these sites and get the best out of them, is the subject of this Webinar.

Free and open to all.
