Tracing Your Scottish Ancestors

The Official Guide
by National Archives of Scotland - Find out more about the author

With 5 million people in Scotland, and over 30 million of Scottish descent scattered over the globe, it is not surprising that research into Scottish family history is so popular—especially now that huge amounts of information on family origins are available online. If you are one of those who wish to trace their roots in Scotland, this major new edition of the official guide is the one book you must have.

Prepared by the keepers of the records themselves, this new edition of the handbook is written in a friendly and accessible style for the family researcher. Major new developments in online facilities are extensively covered. Now, whether in person or through the ScotlandsPeople site, you can find certificates of births, marriages and deaths, wills, church registers, taxation lists, censuses, military records and many more. Using this book, you can hold the pages of the past in your hand and shine a light on who your ancestors really were.

The National Archives of Scotland is the government department responsible for the custody and preservation of the records of the government of Scotland.
