We are delighted to announce the Release of Valuation Rolls 1875 on the ScotlandsPeople website.

The index is FREE to search for the first time, until the 31st December. The Valuation Rolls are an excellent companion to the census, and are a useful aid for locating where and how your ancestors lived.
