ScotlandsPeople releases 1935 Valuation Rolls online

The ScotlandsPeople website (www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk) has released the 1935 Valuation Rolls for the Scotland, which includes more than 2.7 million names. The full news release is available at https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/article/news-valuation-rolls-1935-go-online.

With this release the available rolls on the site cover the years 1855, 1865, 1875, 1885, 1895, 1905, 1915, 1920, 1925, 1930 and 1935 - though please note that the rolls are in fact annual from 1855-1989, with many others available for consultation at the National Records of Scotland, and local archives across the country.

A guide detailing how they can be used is available at https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/research/guides/valuation-rolls.

(NB: The database at the ScotlandsPeople Centre and at other family history centres hosting the same system also has the 1935 rolls up and running - I was using them earlier today at the Burns Monument Centre in Kilmarnock!)
