Research in Archives

Do you need a quick lookup but live too far away from where the records are held? Perhaps you are struggling to find a Scottish birth, marriage or death record because your ancestor has a common name. Save your Scotland’s People credits and get Graham to search for you.

The National Records of Scotland (formerly known as the National Archives of Scotland) has an excellent online catalogue. Perhaps you have come across something you want to search but live in New York or Brisbane. For a small research fee Emma can search for the document you need and provide high quality digital photographs.
