The aim of this website is to help you trace your Scottish family tree and find out more about the lives of your ancestors by helping you access historic documents that are here in Scotland.
We have a wide range of indexes from birth, marriage, death and census records to mental health and prison records. You can search all of our indexes from this page or you can go to our 'Record Sets' page and search by individual category. Find out exactly what we have indexed so far on our coverage page.
If you can’t find the record you are searching for you may find our 'Search Help' or 'Learning Zone' pages useful. Of course, you can always email us and one of our genealogists will reply to you personally as soon as possible. It may be that we have not indexed the record you need yet, if that is the case can you 'Sponsor an Index'?
