Scotland's People

ScotlandsPeople is one of the largest online sources of original genealogical information, with almost 50 million records to access.

The digital images on Scotland's People, the official Government source of genealogical data for Scotland, are of deaths and burials contained in the Old Parish Registers of Scotland (OPRs). The OPRs are the records which the Church of Scotland kept of births and baptisms, banns and marriages and deaths and burials for the 300 years before the start of the civil registration system in 1855.

You can do free surname searches, but there is a cost for viewing the digitized documents.
