ScotlandsPeople search rooms closed Monday 22nd

From ScotlandsPeople (

The ScotlandsPeople search rooms - closed on Monday 22 August 2016

The ScotlandsPeople search rooms will be closed on Monday 22 August 2016 due to technical problems affecting our services.

Our ScotlandsPeople online service and our historical and legal search rooms are unaffected.

We apologise for the inconvenience and will provide further updates when they are available on Twitter and Facebook.

For seat booking enquiries, please call 0131 314 4300.

COMMENT: There's been a few problems last few days apparently, so if you are planning to visit Edinburgh to do research next week, I would keep an eye for further announcements. I suspect this will also affect other centres hostinh the ScotlndsPeople system (it usuall does), such as the Glasgow Registrar's service at the Mitchell Library, and other centres in Kilmarnock, Inverness, Alloa, Hawick, etc - you may wish to contact them in advance if planning a visit also.

National Records of Scotland hosted catalogues seem to be unaffected.
