Search of all available Scottish Statutory Records, Old Parish Registers and Census Records for one person plus their siblings.
This will give you one line of your heritage (mother OR father) PLUS their siblings and will include all available records from Statutory, Old Parish and Census Records.
Scottish Statutory Registration began on 1st January 1855. Everyone was required to register the main events in their lives - births, marriages and deaths - with the official registrar in their local area. Most records include information about the person's parents, their address at the date of the event, the informant's name and maybe some witnesses.
Not all Old Parish Records (the records before 1855) have survived but many remain. They can vary in the amount of information given - some are quite sparse, but some can give several relatives or generations in one go.
Although there were Censuses taken earlier, useful records start from 1841. Precise addresses and family groups can be found.
To enable us to search effectively, we need as much information as you have already. This must include at least one event date (birth, marriage, death) for the person you want researched. It would be helpful to have a location - town, village, parish or even an address and any other information that you might already have (even if you are unsure of any this information) such as their parents, children or spouse names and/or location. If you have a family story about this person, please tell us that too.
The results of the search will be written up into appropriate charts and narrative that will be provided to you along with copies of records obtained on your behalf.
