ScotlandsPeople index update

From ScotlandsPeople (www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk):

Statutory birth, marriage and death indexes for 2014 are now available to search on ScotlandsPeople.

You can now view the updated indexes for statutory records until the end of 2014, and in addition to this, images for births until 1914, marriages until 1939 and deaths until 1964. You can also purchase an Extract, a fully certified copy of a birth, marriage or death certificate, for 12GBP. For more information on purchasing an official Extract, please read more.

Incidentally, if you are interested in finding out more about the law behind Scottish civil registration from 1855 - when and where events had to be registered, what the informant legally had to do in the process, what the registrars had to do, plus all the background to Scottish civil registration records both online and offline (and within Scotland and beyond!) - my Unlock the Past guide book Discover Scottish Civil Registration Records is currently available on special offer from Gould Genealogy in Australia until August 31st at just AU$12 (inc GST) - see www.gould.com.au/Discover-Scottish-Civil-Registration-Records-p/utp0284.htm.

The book can also be purchased for £7 from My History in England (+p&p) via http://www.my-history.co.uk/acatalog/Scottish-Civil-Registration-UTP0284.html#SID=876, and in Canada from Global Genealogy at http://globalgenealogy.com/countries/scotland/resources/2590284.htm for just C$17.
