In general Scottish genealogy is different to that in England, largely because the many records used are unique to Scotland. There are three major sources: civil registration from 1855, the census between 1841 and 1901, and old parish registers which begin in the 16th century and go up to the end of 1854. These records are held at:

General Register Office for Scotland,
New Register House,
Edinburgh. EH1 3YT.
Website:  www.gro-scotland.gov.uk

The records have also been digitised and can be consulted at:  www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk
