NRS exhibition on 1905 Valuation Rolls

From ScotlandsPeople (

In our previous newsletter, we announced the launch of the 1905 Valuation Rolls, which include AJ Balfour (pictured right), the Conservative Prime Minister of the day, and James Keir Hardie (pictured far right), founder of the Independent Labour Party.

A new display at the National Records of Scotland highlights the different social spheres they inhabited. Discover what separated them, what they had in common, and how the Valuation Rolls can help open up new avenues of ancestry research.

This FREE display runs at General Register House, Edinburgh, from 25 February to 26 April 2013, Monday to Friday: 9am - 4.30pm. Check the NRS website for further details.
