ScotlandsPeople family history event

From the latest ScotlandsPeople Centre newsletter:

The next ScotlandsPeople family history event takes place at General Register House on Monday 25 June, 9.30 am to 12.30pm. Starting with a brief presentation about the ScotlandsPeople Centre, this is followed with a taster session using the computer search system. To round off the event, there is another brief talk about the records that are held in the Historical Search Room. Light refreshments (included in the ticket price) are provided during the session.

These informal events are ideal for people who are new to genealogy or the facilities at the ScotlandsPeople Centre. Attendance costs £5.00 to cover the cost of refreshments, and places and seats must be booked and paid for in advance. For further information and to reserve a place, please call 0131 314 4541 (option 1) or email the ScotlandsPeople Centre at

The newsletter also has details about further forthcoming Valuation Rolls releases, following the recent 1915-16 release. The centre asked if people wanted records to be released prior to 1915 first, or those after 1915 - it looks like the great Scottish public wants to go back in time! (A real pity I think, as there is actually little available online after 1915!) The newsletter is accessible at
