ScotlandsPeople service launch in Inverness

It's actually been available there for a wee while, but the official launch of the ScotlandsPeople Centre's computer terminals in Inverness has now happened, in the Family History Centre (Ionad Eachdraidh Teaghlaich) at the Highland Archive and Registration Centre (http://www.highlandarchives.org.uk/genealogy.asp).

People using the set up will be able to use records at the facility for £15 a day unlimited access, including:
  • Births, Marriages and Deaths (from January 1855).
  • Census Returns from 1841 to 1911;
  • Church of Scotland Old Parish Registers up to 1854;
  • Roman Catholic parish registers
  • Valuation Rolls
  • Wills and Testaments from 1513-1925
There's a blog post on the official launch, with photos, via Highland Council at http://www.highland.gov.uk/news/article/7610/scotlandspeople_finds_a_home_in_the_highlands

(With thanks to Highland Archive Centre via Facebook)


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And FindmyPast - please reinstate the original Scottish census citations on your new site.
