Saturday service trial from Glasgow Genealogy Centre

The Glasgow Genealogy Centre (, operated by the Registrar's Service to provide access to the ScotlandsPeople computer system for £15 unlimited research a day, is running a pilot scheme to trial Saturday openings on an occasional basis. The next Saturday when it will be open is Saturday 22nd November 2014, from 9.30am to 4.00pm. There is in fact a session this coming Saturday 25th, but it is already fully booked.

The Burns Monument Centre already offers Saturday access on a weekly basis in Kilmarnock, though ironically, the provider of the service itself in Edinburgh does not. As not everybody works civil service hours, this is a very welcome development - here's hoping the Glasgow trial leads to something a bit more permanent!
