National Records of Scotland website expansion

Almost three and a half years ago the National Archives of Scotland and the General Register Office for Scotland merged to form a single body, the National Records of Scotland. Despite the merger, both institutions retained their respective websites, with only a limited portal website for the National Records of Scotland being established at www.nrscotland.gov.uk.

Today sees a major expansion of this NRS website, which will soon completely replace its predecessors at www.gro-scotland.gov.uk and www.nas.gov.uk. From today the GROS website will no longer be updated with any new content, and the catalogues and other content from the NAS site will soon also be made accessible via the National Records site.

(With thanks to Anne Slater at the NRS)


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And please consider purchasing the great new version of Caledonia by The Libations at 79p via www.caledonia2014.com - all profits go to help fund Scottish foodbanks

  1. The Scotlands People Centre site (www,scotlandspeoplehub.gov.uk) is moving over to the new website too :-) Not such an easy name to remember but the new website seems to work better on firefox than the 'old' one did.
