ScotlandsPeople Updated

ScotlandsPeople have notified us that indexes available at the Centre are now much closer to those used for civil registration.

For the future, they plan to update the indexes at regular intervals.

Any errors found in indexes may be reported to the staff in the search rooms.

You can visit the historical search rooms without charge in General Register House if you have a reader's ticket. To create a reader's ticket they need two passport size photos plus photographic ID and proof of your current address. 

Customers can view both original documents and virtual volumes. Examples of records that can be viewed include valuation rolls, Kirk session records, some wills and testaments after 1901, sasine records and much more.

To speak to staff phone 0131 535 1334.
