ScotlandsPeople update for 2017

I've just been notified by the team behind the ScotlandsPeople website ( that the annual update of records for 2017, to add images of statutory birth records for 1916, marriage records for 1941 and death records for 1966, will be carried out on Thursday 5 January 2017, rather than the usual January 1st date previously adhered to.

I have been advised that this is "to ensure that staff are available to deal with any follow-up queries customers may have".
