ScotlandsPeople updates birth, marriage and death record images

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

129,445 new online images have been released on the ScotlandsPeople website consisting of just over 207,000 birth, death and marriage register entries. You can search for, view and save images of these entries on ScotlandsPeople.

The update sees additions of images for historic records of births from 1919, marriages from 1944, and deaths from 1969. An article looking in particular at examples of the marriage records additions can be found at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/article/our-records-double-wedding-celebrations.
