Program: ““Kilts, Celts, and Scots: Researching your Scottish Ancestors

Patti will help us navigate the ScotlandsPeople website, providing helpful insights into researching your Scottish heritage. Their purpose is to collect, preserve, and produce information about Scotland’s people & history and make it available to inform current & future generations. As the official Scottish government site for searching government records and archives, the website is used by hundreds of thousands of people each year to apply for copies of official certificates and to research family history, biography, and local & social history. On this site, you have access to the statutory registers of births, marriages, deaths, census returns, church records, valuation rolls, and legal records from Scotland’s courts of law.
